I think that this may be done also through new DBMI driver.

We started to work on dig5.0 format with multi-category support (with
D. D Gray). I think that colors could be saved in reclassed files as
categories with some new number. For example link to database is in
category with number 1 (cat_num=1, cat=123) and to reclassed file is added
new category (cat_num=1, cat=123; cat_num=1001, cat=5) i.e. color number 5
from some color table or (cat=255000000) color is red.
