Gear that is below your average Ilvl is red.
Gear that is on par to your average ilvl is green
Gear that is superior to your average ilvl is purple.
(Colors just arbitrarily chosen)
One of the worst experiences in a new xpac is when you have to replace your old purples with new greens. It'd be a much nicer transition if your ilvl 600 shows up as green (par) and that 610 item drops as purple.
This also quickly shows you which items need to go, if you're leveling in your 40-50 range, a level 30 ring you got would appear red due to a low ilvl.
Legendaries could have a heroic-esque "Legendary" tag.
I would request that everyone that weighs in on this do so in a reasonable manner without resorting to insults, etc. It's a pretty interesting subject to talk about.

Show respect even to people who don't deserve it; Not as a reflection of their character, but of yours.
