Actually, the letters BZR is pretty easy to write at the bottom. Just
add it directly to both images (so it will be relatively larger at 16x16).
I think BZR are probably easy to read letters. Without anti-aliasing, I
think in 16x16 you could easily do something like:

xxx  xxxx xxx
x  x   x  x  x
xxx   x   xxx
x  x x    x  x
xxx  xxxx x   x

That is 14x5, but seems very readable, especially if you could do some

True, but I think having BZR would be helpful.
