Giving layer colors a customizable label would be an interesting feature for me. If you're working in an environment where a PSD gets sent around to multiple people, it would be good to have a way to indicate what layer colors mean what. For example, instead of having "Red, Yellow, Blue, Gray" etc. in the layer properties menu for colors, since the color is pretty obvious already, it would be possible to rename these labels to whatever one desires. For example, one could rename "Red" to "Hover state" or rename "Green" to "Pressed state".

Something like this:

Of course, you could also just make a legend on the document itself, but that's extra work. You could make a smart object for it that you can paste into documents, but the meanings of these colors might change from project-to-project, document-to-document. Having a more permanent and integrated solution would be better in this regard.
