I will add to you misery by adding an even more stupid question than
invented colours = other colors than black, can that ever be part of
(I know colors are put in another statement in html, but to try think
Invented signs or colors could commercially be very valuable in domain
names. If for example coca cola could encode such that nor 'lettertype'
nor color would be 'neutralised' in a domain name, and it would be the
first drink to achieve this, it would have an impact.
(not that I am in favour of invented signs/colours, just testing whether
it is possible when a big company wants it. Out of 10 stupid questions
often 1 proves accidentally to be visionary).

What you propose is just exactly what Wilkins proposed, and he could not succeed because it is IMPOSSIBLE.
