Yipe! That's quite a package.  :)  I was figuring if anyone did it,
they'd be doing it for lighting purposes, and so would do it with a
pre-balanced chiplet (or "grain", perhaps) with three (or, as you note,
four) junctions and just a single pair of leads.  But doing it with six
leads does, I suppose, allow for switching or duty-cycling individual
junctions to generate *any* color of visually-perceived light output. 
Pink, purple, teal, sky's the limit.
