Add additional information to an attribute, such as adding RGB info to a “color” attribute

I have a few “complex” attributes that I would like to set up the in Magento in the “right way” as much as possible. For example, I’d like to have a “color” attribute in which I can assign not only the name of the color (which is simple with Magento’s existing attribute system) but also assign an RGB value so that when the attribute is displayed in the frontend, I can use that RGB value. What is the recommended method to do something like this? I found this thread that discusses something similar to what I’m requesting, and I’m wondering if the method described there is considered the best approach, or if there is a better way to do this.
