I'm not sure what you mean by object controllers?
I think I know what an action is, but I would be guessing about linked 
character proxies, and resonable rest transformations.

I'm not really sure why changing how the bone is displayed should affect 
any of these things.

As far as bone color being misleading to riggers, is this because this 
is not what you are used to? Because it is fairly common in other packages.
