Default Track Colour for OSC controllers

Request
I'd like to create something like the image shows below for an OSC control surface, but Reaper does not share the track colour with OSC control surfaces yet.

The colour of the track is sent to the control surface along with other kinds of data.

The format could simply be one floating point number per colour channel.
Benefits
Easier visual access. Track names are useful, but colour makes them even easier to recognize. We can take advantage of this in Reaper itself, yet we cannot on OSC controllers.

I have most of my controls covered with other controllers. An easier visual track selection would give me speedier access to tracks without having to use a mouse.


Large track selection pads make this foolproof to use.

(note on the image size: making this smaller just increased the image file size. It is just 24 kB right now. Plus JPG looks like crap for GUI pictures)

The gimmicks at the bottom and to the left are just ideas. For the main request, they can be disregarded.

I would love this. That said are there currently any OSC controllers/apps available that would support showing track colors?

Could be nice something like this:
TRACK_COLOR s/tr@/x

The value is in string format for RGB (0..1,0...1,0...1) —*that's what Lemur can understand.

I totaly agree with ! As an orchestral templates user, I'd really appreciate this 'cause for now I have to manually report track color from reaper to lemur !
