In Scott Kelby's
"The photoshop CS2 book for digital photographers":
he describes the rating system of Adobe Bridge.
According to the screen shot one has
  no star    CTRL-0
  *          CTRL-1
  *****      CTRL-5

  Red        CTRL-6
  Yellow     CTRL-7
  Green      CTRL-8
  Blue       CTRL-9

He refers to red being the best-of-the-best photos
(i.e. best of the 5 star ones)
and purple for the "worst best photos".
((rating a red 5-star "a pop-up menu appears,
where you can choose Submit to National Geographic (kidding)" ;-)

I don't own Photoshop, so I cannot test how these
are translated into IPTC settings (e.g. would Red correspond
to 6 and Purple to 10 ?)

Further googling did not help to find anything definitive on this,
just the same type of problem
and other possible interpretations of labels

Somehow I like the idea of red labels, though I am less
sure about the others ...

Best, Arnd
