A solution to comparing colors

I was reading below about the problem of standardizing colors on
monitors and in photos to make sure that what you see is seen by
everyone. One idea would be to use a standard color chart like the
one linked below for DMC embroidery floss. You could go to any craft
store and pick up any red, green, and blue for under a buck total and
bring them home to make sure they show up on your monitor as they do
in real life. Now you can adjust photo colors to show what's real,
not just what your monitor is set for. Also, you can refer to the
chart and say "Yesterday's henna was a 307 but now it's 842" or
whatever and everyone who has done the adjustment would know exactly
what you mean.
Does this make sense?
