I would agree that a better visual indication is needed to distinguish linked and unlinked MIDI regions, but I'm not sure I agree that using a different color is the best way to represent this. Other DAW's usually represent shared/linked copies with some sort of icon on the event/region AFAIK.

with colours you'll be able to spot the linked regions much faster then a tiny icon
also when you zoom out .. where are the icons then ?

when I have time (never btw) I'll do a mock-up

I had made a feature request about highlighting linked regions few months ago:
