Vertex colors are way too low resolution for practical. If you want to
synthesize a texture with enough detail it won't work well this way,
not unless you require very high memory usage by subdividing the mesh
that much. The second issue is that it would be quite a strange
workflow, texturing is usually done elsewhere, it's strange to do it
on a mesh and then require the user to bake it down.
