Yes, they can.

    blush <- "#CD5C5C"
    mycols <- function () { #your code here...

I note that:

Changing existing code (esp in base packages) creates considerable problems.
Because code (not just CRAN packages) may depend on whatever is being changed.

The word "Blush" may also offend someone.
Blush is a type of makeup, often tested on animals.
Hence, we go around in a circle.
