I especially like this one, because it would provide a way of easily getting consistent colors (rather than having to insert 'fake' data into the data set so that that the same colors are always assigned to the same data alpha/numerically).

I welcome any means of adressing this annoying drawback of the behaviour of the Pattern and Symbol statements, so I'll vote for it.

But I would prefer a way that better segregates style from data; perhaps similar to the way one can in ODS use formats to set style attributes depending on data. The Pattern and Symbol statements should accept a format instead of a value for the specifications for colors, symbols, heights, etc. The format can translate data values into a color, a symbol, etc.
