If the rule isn't saved in the colorfilters file, does the rule's name serve any purpose other than to identify the rule in places such as the Frame section of the packet details?  Can you, for example, edit the rule, by name, to change its color?

If the rule name is not useful, just calling that one "Conversation rule" might suffice...

...and calling that one "Field rule" might suffice.

If the name is useful, the name of the first rule might be

	Conversation <->

to summarize the conversation endpoints (if there are multiple such rules, a number could, for example, be added after "Conversation"), and the name of the second rule might just be its rule string.
