Just curious, what breeds of cats have pale dilute coats as kittens that develop or darken over the first 2 years?

I think she's finished darkening now, I'm so used to what she looks like now that I always get a bit of, really? she was *that* pale? when I look at her kitten photos.
Here's her kitten face:
Just compare that to my avatar with her in. Her eyes were sort of brownish and green and are just green now, is that a common change as well?
I'm not sure if darkening as much as Nikita has is considered good or not, it does diminish the contrast between the undercoat and the spots since the coat is now much darker but at the same time I find the rich, deep colour very attractive and it's not as if the spots are disappearing into the base colour.
I do think though that they're trying to breed cats that have a paler more golden undercoat but still with dark spots.
