Mob difficulty scale?

I've found that mobs will have either one large dot, or three smaller dots in a pyramid formation, beside their nameplate. I've seen this dot/tri-dot pyramid, in several different colors. It appears that this is a method of determining the mob's difficulty in relation to you.

Has anyone posted a scale that shows which symbol/color combination means what difficulty level in relation to your own strength?

I've found this much out so far.

One large dot beside the nameplate means the mob is a solo pull. Adds only aggro if they get wander close enough

Three smaller dots in a pyramid formation means the mob is part of a linked group. Pull that mob and all others linked to it aggro automatically.

The color scale for the dot(s) I've learned so far is probably not complete, but includes:

green= a lot weaker than you
blue= a little weaker than you
white= just about equal
yellow=a little stronger than you
red= much stronger than you
skull instead of dots= just DON"T pull it. At least, not if you're alone.
crown or flag= must kill this mob for a quest/mission

Probably a couple more I still haven't found out.

This is fantastic information! Thank you for this.
