There's a step missing below: how to save the palette after using 
Palettes->Generate Palette from Selection !

This issue has arisen before in MathGroup. I know there's an answer, and 
I could probably again reconstruct it or find it by a search, but the 
difficulty indicates that there's a design gap in Mathematica in such 
situations.  It just should not be that non-obvious.
