Adding a WHITE label?

Is it possible to add a white label to media (as opposed to the default color options)?  i see lots of posts about how these labels unexpectedly show up when photos are imported from another source, but i would actually LOVE extra colors to play with. When editing i sometimes use the colors to help my brain stay organized.  So, white, or whatever – any way to label with ANY color(s) in addition to the five defaults? And even if it can't be done directly, there must be some back-door trick to it, no?  i mean, Bridge clearly has the ability to display a white bar, so there's gotta be some way to trigger it.

THANK YOU! YOU GUYS ROCK!

Read the script header below for an explanation. A link to info on how to save and install is below the code.

 

/*
This is not really a feature, it is just that Bridge uses a white label colour
for an unsupported label name, so this is really an exploit... 

Here the label name is 'Custom'. This presumes that the default label names are in use (Select, Second, Approved, Review, To Do).

Use at your own risk!

#target bridge
if (BridgeTalk.appName == "bridge") {
    customLabel = new MenuEleme

    for (var i = 0; i < sels.length; i++) {
        var thumb = sels[i];
        var md = thumb.metadata
        md.namespace = "http://ns.adobe.com/xap/1.0/";

To condense that down, Adobe assigns a white label when the label text (which is really what is written to disk) doesn't match an assigned label text/color combo. The problem is that you could have twenty different labels that would all be white if they didn't match an assigned label.
