I'm afraid I do not have anything definitive to offer. Here's what
comes to mind:
1) do you have the "red&white" book, or whatever color Adobe printed the
latest PS manual in? I am not terribly surprised that color stuff in
the original red book no longer applies.
2) the Ghostscript maintainers could presumably offer some advice, at
least in regards Ghostscript. bug-gs at ghostscript.com.
3) There are some color packages on CTAN. I don't know if they are
doing anything different than you are doing (I doubt it), but perhaps
they are worth a look. For instance:
colorsep - old package from Sebastian, seems to exist in TL only:
xcolor - new package from Uwe Kern
I know you don't want to use LaTeX, but maybe whatever it does with
\special would be interesting to see. Or maybe not. Just wildly
Sorry I can't really help.
