That is certainly a reasonable approach. It seems like it might just be a
bit of a philisophical difference between the two approaches. The way I
described very tightly associates a specific color with each cell - you
could say the cell "is" that color. The lookup table method is simply
"temporarily" applying colors to the cells, which can be changed at a
moments notice by adjusting the parameters of the table.

The bottom line is that if you're getting the result you're looking for,
you are "correct" :)
