The American Heritage Dictionary likes supersede too, although supercede
makes more sense if it's related to succede in any way. Of course
sense never stopped the English language.
As for colour, tyres etc. please keep them - they're colo(u)rful! Please
don't start spelling "world" like you say it though! To my ears, you guys
barely can bear to say 'r' in some places, so it sounds like "BBC Wuld
Suvice" to me :-)
We now return you to your regularly seduled(sic) python :-)
