I'm not really sure what you want. The goal of the colorkey is to
associate a given z-value (or height) with a specific color.
drape=TRUE does this, e.g.,
wireframe(volcano, drape = TRUE, colorkey = TRUE)
Now, with shade=TRUE, e.g.,
wireframe(volcano, shade = TRUE)
the SAME Z-VALUE CAN HAVE DIFFERENT COLORS depending on the
orientation of the facet with respect to the viewing direction and the
light source. So, a colorkey DOES NOT MAKE SENSE.
