You have the right idea.

I have tried to finish the code too now ;-)

Please see the attached files. Beside a more complete widget type for colors I have also included some basic functions for testing custom types. I believe these could be useful.

I have tried to make them as clean and simple as they can be at the moment. However I am unsure about how to call the :match and :validate functions. I might very well be missing something concerning the conversion from and to external values.

BTW when I have been looking at this I have had a hard time to understand why there are both :match and :validate functions.

I also do not understand the paramters they take. Why do the :match function have a widget parameter? Does it have something to do with external - internal conversion, or?

(defun color-digits-p (color)
    (string-match (rx bos
                      (1+ (repeat 3 3 hex-digit))

(defun widget-color-match (widget value)
   ;; I am not sure what colors to test. It might be relevant to check
   ;; all as I suggest here.
   ;;(color-defined-p val)
   (member value x-colors)
   (and (stringp value)
        (color-digits-p value))))

(define-widget 'color 'editable-field
  "Choose a color (with sample)."
  :format "%{%t%}: %v (%{sample%})\n"
