Is color coded traffic altitude indication possible?

Are there consensus standards on ADS-B traffic display, or do you have some leeway?  On my center console-mounted N7v2, the outlined text makes the numbers nicely visibly, but it is sometimes difficult to make out the +/- indicator on the traffic altitude display. It would be much easier if the sign was color-coded!  The "obvious" choices are green if the traffic is above you, e.g. +03 and red for traffic below you, e.g. 04.  Anyone else think this is worthwhile? Or have other suggestions for colors, like blue & orange, e.g.  +03 and  04?  (Note I used the em-dash — instead of the normal dash - for enhanced visibility of the minus sign!  The en-dash – is also possible.)

Re: Is color coded traffic altitude indication possible?

I would like enhanced visuals on the traffic date, either let me increase the fonts, or show the altitude with increased visablity, When traffic appears, its nice to get a quick reference on if they are above, below, or worse, the same altitude...I do use the filtering and that has been working very well, Thanks!
