I don't see a good reason not to do so. Spare some bytes?..

The states for colors and attributes are separate; that's how the bold attribute bled into your the auto-colored parts of your output. You could use that property to specify e.g. "give me automatic coloring, but reverse it".

This only works by accident now, I think. Full resets are emitted after many placeholders, so attributes don't reach very far in practice. We'd have to be more careful with these full resets if we'd want attributes to cover multiple placeholders. An automatic reset at the start of %C(auto) would go into the opposite direction.
