Hi GerSch, forgive me if I don't understand you exactly, but my philosophy is never to color thoughts directly except to store them as color samples. Always color the thoughts from the color of the type assigned to them. This is because PB has no way of mass-changing the direct colors of thoughts. If you have 50 thoughts of different colors and you want to change them to another color, you will have to do this 50 times unless you use color types. It should be verboten to assign a color directly to a thought! Unfortunately this is not mentioned in the User Guide.
One of my Brains is named Templates and contains among other things a number of thoughts each with a different color that I find easy to distinguish. The hex value of that color is stored in its Note so I don't have to open the color wheel each time to read off its hex value.
Note: if PB did disable the user's ability to assign colors directly to thoughts, I would use instead the same number of thoughts, each of a different thought type representing a different color, that's all.
Alternatively, you could create just one thought containing a Table in its note, each cell in the table containing a different color plus its hex value. However, this would not be as realistic as seeing an actual thought of this color in the plex. Hope this helps.
