Announced at the Microsoft //build conference:

>A data structure, implemented as a new 'COLR' table in OpenType, 
>breaks down the base glyph into a separate set of glyphs, each 
>with its own z-order and single color reference. The color 
>references are handled has palette indices, with a separate table, 
>'CPAL' in OpenType that resolves the RGBA colors actually used 
>for the glyph.
