A simple change?

Its relatively easy to change tile colors and icons but this is limited because it changes all the same types on the dashboard.
It would be nice if I could change this per tile..
Along the same, It would be great to be able to change the 'icon helper text' as well.
Currently I have a 'sump level' switch which uses the contact template that displays 'open or closed' I want to make it 'High or low'. I don't know much about css.
Is there any future plans to be able to just modify the Tile attributes without css editing?
