Looks OK. I'm slightly bothered by the colorLabelVisible property and wondering if either (a) we should specify this via CSS instead or (b) we should add contentDisplay. With ContentDisplay you can not only choose TEXT_ONLY or GRAPHIC_ONLY (graphic in this case being the color swatch you show), but also specify how they are positioned relative to each other.

I'm not sure I prefer the contentDisplay solution just because in the future I could imagine wanting to add a ColorPickerCell or something for completely customizing the editor area.

Speaking of which, is the color picker editable? Do we need to expose the editor like we are thinking about for ComboBox?
