Track Colors & Pictures for Input/Output Channels

Right now you can change the color for any Track/MixConsole Channel except for Input and Output channels. It would be nice to be able to change these colors too - especially for inputs. If for example I’ve got a guitar coming in on one channel and a bass on another, then it would be useful to set those channels to the same colors I use to indicate guitars and basses in my projects. Similarly being able to use Pictures on the I/O channels would also be useful.

I wonder why when they added the color & picture options someone thought they shouldn’t be on all channels? 'Cause, you know, it had to be an active decision made by someone to not include them.

Actually you can now set the Colors on Input & Output Channels, but it seems only in the Project Window not the MixConsole. If an I/O Channel is not visible in the Project Window, toggling Automation Write on/off (and then Read off too) will cause it to be visible in the Project Window. Track Pictures have worked for several versions.
