As a start, we could do this as follows:

The word after the colon is checked for facep.  If so, this face is
used, if not, and it is a valid color name, then the color is used.
Later, if somebody feels like implementing categories, that can be
added easily.  I really like the simplicity of the original approach.
Having faces is one level of indirection, but having categories
mapping to faces or colors is even harder to use by a casual user.
