Well I see two possibilities for a "swatch book format" :
* a completely new file format XML based, defining gradients, plain color,
* have an archive which could contains various files using the allready
existing file format for the various ressource
I see two problems of the first solution, the first one is that it means to
spend time writting specification for gradient and it's not really possible
to store pattern in a XML file.
And in fact I don't really see a need for a specification, nor limiting the
type of files in the archive. But having a mime-type that the various
application could recognize as a "swatch" (aka a "ressource archive"), and
then they would just load the ressource they can load, and ignore the others.
