Well... I've pointed out a few times that we really want to cover swatches, which are far more than just color. The CREATE color effort stopped at color and color only.
I think that Synfig is exactly the type of application that needs swatches in the general graphic arts sense of the word.
I've got code started for Inkscape, and now that 0.47 has been released we can be moving forward on it.
Also... it appears that all the color set work with professional companies Scribus is doing might also need this.
