To answer your first question, yes -- at least in my opinion -- and I do 
realize others may have more insight to offer.  The pinkish-lilacs are fairly 
easy to come by.  The traditional explanation is that peach is a combination 
of lycopene and the pale yellow flavenoids.  Examining arilbreds with a 
magnifying glass, I've found that they often have a mixture of pink and 
yellow cells.  

I don't have enough experience with SDBs to tackle the "how" of your second 
question, but prefer to believe that nothing is impossible.

Well.... except for the time a hybridizer friend commented that a certain 
cultivar would "set pods on a fence post" and his smart-aleck grandson tried 
using it on daffodils & tulips <G>.
