That would more than okay, that would be great! :-)

And towards all the "LibO Gurus" (incl. you, Kami), is there any way to
add a (visible?) comment within the color palette? As Bernhard
mentioned, the colors will change ... for sure.

I was able to add something like that to the GIMP Palette (Extract):
        GIMP Palette
        Name: LibreOffice Initial Branding Colors (November 2010)
        Columns: 8

But I am unaware whether the LibO/OOo XML (.soc) can handle that.

Moreover, it would be great if somebody could check the XML for
validity, since I badly "hacked" it (without that much XML knowledge).
At least, it loads and works (for me).

Again, here is the link the most recent files in the TDF wiki:
