    Yeah pointers come in lighter shades, gsp are mainly variations of liver, black and white.

    I can't find anything on other colours, even unlikely but possible ones.

    Usually there will be a blurb about them somewhere. Annoying!

    I agree with this. Look for the oldest standard you can find. If its listed as a DQ color, then the color occurs naturally. For example in old lab/retriever standards yellow & liver have been DQ colors (also brindle & B&T) because they existed in the breed. Silver was never mentioned in lab/retriever standards because it was not in the breed.
    Unfortunately most breeds recently standardized don't give those clues, for example the ukc plott standard doesn't mention buckskin & neither it nor the AKC standard mention merle.
