In the example below, there are unique feature counts and then IDs.

If aggregates are not important, only 3 colors are required:

Feature Adjacent to Areas
2,20 1, 3, 6
8,20 3
9,20 4

If, however, ID 2,20 is treated as an aggregate, then 4 colors are required and the pre-existing ID attributes must be supplied.

Feature Adjacent to Areas
20 10, 30, 40, 60
Feature Not Adjacent to Area
20 50
