The practical solution to that is to use a (stack of) terminal
emulator(s) that supports 24-bit colors.

Custom themes. Which are arbitrary Elisp code and can thus define and
use variables:

    (defconst yk-scarletred "#ef2929")

    (custom-theme-set-faces 'yk-dark-theme
      …
      `(yk-incorrect
        ((((type graphic)) . (:underline (:color ,yk-scarletred :style wave)))
         (((min-colors 16777216)) . (:foreground ,yk-scarletred :underline t))))
      `(trailing-whitespace ((default . (:inherit yk-incorrect))))
      …)

    (provide-theme 'yk-dark-theme)

You can use anti-quoted variables or expressions with custom-set-face,
too (I just think themes are cleaner):

    (custom-set-faces
     `(font-lock-preprocessor-face
       ((default :foreground ,(cdr (assq 'magenta my/colors))))))
