COLOR column type - more choices than just 6 colors

The COLOR column type is quite useful to efficiently display a small color “dot”. With just one column, you get a formatted color dot as well as an enum for the user to select from a list/dropdown/buttons. No need for columns plus formatting rules. Nice.

But, we are limited to only 6 colors if you check the documentation - 8 in reality - as White (which is light Grey) and Black also work in addition to the documented Red, Yellow, Green, Orange,Purple, and Blue. We are also limited to just a DOT. Would also be great to not just allow “dots”, but also “squares” as a setting for the Color Column type.

And… it would really increase flexibility of we had the ability to use a wider range of colors so “dots” could be used in more ways that Red/Green/Yellow flagging. My request is to as a minimum, support a standard “web safe” color list or even just the google standard color pallette.
