Yes -- and then there's the current foreground color. One could make a case -- 
for instance because the Gimp does it that way -- that the current fg. colour 
belongs to a particular tool, too. And it would fit working with something 
that imitates natural media, too, since every brush (of the bristly variety) 
is 'loaded' with paint in a particular colour.

I am rather strongly in favour of per brush.
