Is there a way to customize the colors available in the color palette (for setting back and foreground colors on objects)? We'd like our corporate colors to be permanent options (at the moment I'm adding them as a custom color on each individual object).
Wow! This month we've had all sorts of excellent questions about missing features in Visual Studio .NET. After a good bit of looking around, it doesn't look like there is any programmatic way to change the stock palettes for controls.

What I would do instead is create an assembly that contains the programmatic settings for colors in a set of common classes others could use and set the foreground and background colors programmatically in the constructor for the code. Alternatively, you could derive custom controls from the stock control classes that set the colors automatically as well.
