Overwrite background colors for project resource (plan, sections, worksheets, details)

I'm looking for a way to obtain different background colors for some worksheets (where I linked some Autocad DWGs), without modifing general background color every time. I've come to the conclusion that this isn't possible yet, but I think it would be useful (particularly for worksheets). It could be done either as a setting in the project map, or as a view option.

The best you can do is add a fill and send it to the back.

But remember it is not your background so your background pen (-1) will not match it.

Yes, I know. I used this workaround some time, bundling it with an extra pen set (with reverted with and black). Pen -1 isn't normally present in DWG I got, so it's not a problem. But it remains a workaround. Setting different backgrounds for each project resource, or setting it in view's will be much more elegant solution.
