Sorry Ermin, but my thoughts are: NO color; none...except as LW Brown suggests, what would be normal for media such as video and photos.

Perhaps color such as you suggest could be an option, I'm not against that feature...but I doubt sincerely that I'd have any interest. Grant's comments sum it up nicely for me.
