But then why, as I wrote in another post to this thread, does the 
following work as expected?

   Grid[Join[{{"First", "Second", "Third"}}, Partition[Range[6], 3]],
       Dividers -> {{Green, 2 -> Red, 3 -> Red}, {2 -> Blue}}]

By your reasoning, that "Green" first item should not work, either.

(Note that the docs show False as a possible item, but that causes the 
same problem as None -- it causes the color specifications 2 -> Red, 
etc., to be ignored but the vertical divider to be drawn in Black.)

So it's still seems to be either a bug or else a shortcoming in the 
documentation.

If it's not a bug, then this is another example where the documentation 
of a built-in object is not complete and precise.
