from theory: oxidized form of color dev. agent forms a dye. any antioxidants such as sulfite, HAS, AA recovery CD and decrease dye forming. ideal color developer must be without any sulfite/HAS )) but this is impossible because short live. so level of any antioxidant must be low as possible.
other way - one shot dev. it can be easy formulated without HAS and with low amount of sulfite.
