Check out the READMEs/colortable file in Anthony's X Icon Library
for a proposed minimal colortable. While not sufficient for XFaces'
purposes (not enough skin tones, eg), it might make a good starting point.

Nice idea. But it'd probably still be worthwhile to build-in a few of
the most common formats (eg, GIF) for efficiency reasons.
