I agree. The current solution is too complex and at the wrong level. In a highly distributed and global company, there's no way that when defining a picklist object that everyone will agree that a certain value should always be a certain color. This must be able to be set at the report level as report writers shouldn't have the ability to modify objects in order to manager their report's colors. While I can understand that a picklist is preferred for managing the possible resultset and in the sample report in the report builder you may not see all of the values for a field until the report is generated, you most certainly will know that one or a few of the values will exist and must always be a certain color.
