I currently use the following color mapping, as I only have the four Xeno colors from the Ice Towers box set (until my order ships, that is!)

White = Green
Cyan = Blue
Clear = Yellow
Purple = Red

My reasoning (it's lame, but still) is this:

White is a solid, opaque color, so it should be used for constructing ships. Construction creates something solid, so there you go.

Cyan is close to blue. Yeah, I got lazy on that one. :)

Clear is for movement because it's the most transparent color, and if something moves, you can't see it anymore... or something along those lines.

Purple is sometimes referred to as violet, which sounds like violent... so it's for attacking.

So... yeah.
