And yes, the original Enterprise had multi-coloured phasers. However, every single series after that (and lets be fair, there is a hell of a lot more Trek after TOS) Phaseers were Orange.
Also, you solution doesn't work for the people, like me, who simply don't want to see Pink/Purple/Whatever colour Phasers. You will still have the ability to fly around shooting your pink pew pewers, only different would be that you had to pay (using fictional money!) to have them.
there is more then One Orange hue, More then One Green Hue, in fact there are many, there is room in lore to allow hue changes based on technological upgrades.
I quote myself
Federation Phasers in canon have been Red, Blue, Purple, yellow, and Orange
with the Vendor they could set the Hue options to several distinct versions of these colors your Phasers would be individual and still the right color.
ie. 5 different yellows, 5 different reds, ect.
same with Disruptors
ie. 10 different greens
