Duarte Farrajota Ramos (duarteframos) added a comment to T64174: Automatically Store Quick Favorites .

If we always auto save preferences we lose the ability to temporarily change something for the current session alone. I often use it if I don't want to permanently change something or need it just for the current file I'm working on.
Either way I don't have very strong feelings about it, most user preferences are relatively easy to undo or restore to defaults; if you want to fully reset you can easily load factory settings by erasing userpref.blend.

I can see how this would be a useful feature, but it can also be quite destructive if an unsuspecting user creates a new collection and suddenly finds out all his selected objects were moved there.
It also raises some questions like if objects should be moved to the new collection (removed from all current ones) or should they be linked (remain in their current collections in addition to the new one)?

When one is making an effort to rename things and keep a scene tidy it is a frequent action to rename both the object and the data at the same time so having both in the same dialog would definitely save quite some clicking around for two very related actions.

As I have mentioned before, if we named it something along the lines of "Freezing" and changed the icon to a snowflake or similar (if copyright doesn't get in the way) it would solve most confusions

But if those colors are important, and specific colors are expected, then I *could* make them dynamically too.
Or I could take the specified theme color and try to make it darker or lighter. However that has some pitfalls. It would work correctly if the theme designer used a color with some latitude, like a mid-green so I could shift it into a light or dark green.
