And as you've mention the reason for yellow shooting range glasses and the like are to help improve contrast. I have a pair of yellow tinted glasses I wear during poor weather conditions and when sitting at the computer for long periods of time (it helps reduce glare even with a properly adjusted monitor).
I'm not a huge fan of a lot of Daniel Stern's stuff, but here's a write up explaining it better:
I read the same article. I know I see best in fog or blizzards with yellow, and blue lights are very bad for me. I don't do well with any light over about 5500k. Maybe it's because I grew up in an era before these high color-temp lights and my eyes were "trained" that way, I dunno...
