Custom field option for color with text

We are in need of having a "Status" field...meaning on track, off track or blocked....(Green, Yellow, Red).  I could see us using this custom color field being used in many places.  Offering level, release level and feature level.  We also have a need to have status indicated by both our product managers (their readiness) as well as development.  The statuses today map to "States" in the dev tool and our dev team doesn't want to use their workflow as their "on track or off track" status.  Again...this idea applies to features, releases and/or products.  Please give us the option to have other "Colored" customized fields that we can then report out on.

    You can now add colors to custom fields that use predefined or editable choice lists and tags. These fields can also be added to reports to highlight key information or to visualize how projects are progressing.

    Really could use there any way to escalate this.  In is a show stopper for our teams engaging with Aha! and it seems like it would be somewhat easy to do.  Custom pulldown field, but with color and text.  Please help!

    My teams would really use this, they want a Custom Field that can show text + color (even formatting) so it's highly visual to catch the info they want to pass. E.g Red : Alert the project is in jeopardy.
