Just what kind of people have more than 3 color receptors.
Offhand I think there is a older system for color mesurment
and just forget what it was. Remember colors of light and
colors of pigment require two different systems of mesurememnt.
Play around with real raytracing and you will see how hard it
is to get any realistic looking colors.
