But any color can be made into CMYK or Spot. I understand your concern but
wouldn't it better to add a read-me file and double that with a tooltip or
even make a clear warning in the UI itself?

I know that for many many users, spot colors won’t mean much. But color
palettes are for spot colors as well.

How do we solve that?
