I see the list of colors listed there.

can anyone tell me any easy, and proper, way to add the colors to this
config file without messing things up?

These are a few colors defined in that file:

<draw:color draw:name="Bordeaux" draw:color="#993366"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Pale yellow" draw:color="#ffffcc"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Pale green" draw:color="#ccffff"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Dark violet" draw:color="#660066"/>

Can I just add these lines to that file?

<draw:color draw:name="Gold 1 " draw:color="#FFD700"/> 
<draw:color draw:name="Gold 2 " draw:color="#EEC900"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Gold 3 " draw:color="#CDAD00"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Gold 4 " draw:color="#8B7500"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Goldenrod " draw:color="#DAA520"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Goldenrod 1 " draw:color="#FFC125"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Goldenrod 2 " draw:color="#EEB422"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Goldenrod 3 " draw:color="#CD9B1D"/>
<draw:color draw:name="Goldenrod 4 " draw:color="#8B6914"/>

I have a list of many, many color names and their associated colors. 
What would happen if I added 50 or even 100 new colors to the color
table?  Check out th link of the PDF file that has all of these names
and colors.  If you need it, I can send to you a PDF file that shows the
colors [two actually - one with a white background and one with a black one]

Anyone who has used packages like GIMP, Inkscape, and others that have a
large color palette will want to have more choices that the small list
defined as default within LO. 

So is there any reason why someone could change the "standard.soc" color
list to include twice the colors, or even three times the current list?

Are there any issues involved?

Can a user like me add all of the "known" color names and their
associated colors to the file and not have any issues pop up when
displaying the color choices?

I did not make up those names and color codes.  I found several lists of
names/codes for HTML and CSS pages so you can have a really large range
of colors for your text and backgrounds.  I was originally a hand-coder
of web sites - no WYSIWYG editor - so needing a set of reference sheets,
for color and other things, was needed.  So I found and developed a set
of color "sheets" to use as guides.
