Well, why not keep that syntax, but add another one:

 --8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8--
#+color: red
*  This entired entry is in red color

   The contents too.

* Back to normal

  Some text.

  #+color: green
  This next something (a pragraph in this case) is in green color.

  back to normal
 --8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8--

Maybe it's easier to make the comment color the next line only?

How about

    #+style: color=red weight=bold


    I'm red and bold.

Something like this.  It's easier to just add a comment, than to wrap a
region.  Curly braces are hard to type on a german keyboard.

Just jump to the beginning of a line and type `#+red RET' seems easier
to me.  To remove `#+red', `C-k C-k' is enough.  No need to learn
another Shortcut.
