The thing is, the woman doesn't seem to perceive new colors that other people do not; the colors others don't see are being aliased to familiar colors like "pink", and "red". (When she says "do you see that pink", is it a pink that we could see elsewhere? Or some color that we have no concept of, but which she relates to pinkness.)

I'd be curious if she still sees the same thing in a digital image of the scene, or does the RGB system destroy it.
