Pantone is not the only color matching system, just the most popular.
The generic term would be "spot color". There's no reason they couldn't
implement spot colors without trouncing on copyright. Then you could
name your personalized spot color "Pantone 682", and make it display 
as a layer of, say, orange.

Then you could display in RGB-O :)
