Sure, okay with me at least until someone complains :-).
p.s. I'd recommend, if possible, once you run out of bit patterns, to
pick colors for the repeats that differ significantly in luma from their
bit-doubles. This should help recognition in general but especially
should produce sufficient distinction that even for people with
color-impaired vision you could stretch the distinguishable combinations
by 2x or 3x. (And for the rest of us, also choosing significantly
different hues will help.)
