Declaring classes for colors does not create much overhead over the cost of
actually using the colors on the page. Otherwise there is no need to do so.
Unnecessary declarations can be purged.
is not used? What about CSS?)

Adding 256 classes (of which 100--200 are actually used in each document)
is certainly feasible.
However, this solution would not seem to be practical for a colour scheme
using a larger number of colours. Would your mantra remain the same
given, e.g., 256^2 or 64^3 distinct shades of colour? If not, where should
the boundary be drawn?
