I thought IMAP custom flags were poorly supported across servers.
Wouldn't just adding a custom header be a better solution ?

Not practical.  Headers are immutable.  You can only change them by writing a whole new message and deleting the old one.

That's easily supported by many tools (think procmail rules).
FWIW I use a dozen different colors (I really enjoy visually
distinguishing mail kinds, I find it as useful as code highlighting) and
simply having 5 labels would be a bit restraining.
