OK, scratch the dark blue. I've decided to stick with dark red, probably a little darker.

The other thing I had forgotten about is that I have always had a little bit of red bleeding when this paint got wiped down. The attached picture is a wet paper towel wiped across about 20 inches of the wall. You can see the outline of my fingers on the towel.

Is this a concern for covering with another similar color? Is a light sanding and covering with another high quality paint OK?

This is where quality of paint is everything.
Deep colors require lots of pigment, and the usual pigment (universal tints) ,if not locked in the resin will wipe off.
BM's Aura is about as fail safe for not doing that or burnishing than any paint I know. It uses a pigment system ( genex) that becomes part of the paint more totally. That is why it is worth the price.

IMO, of course..

This is what I was trying to explain to you earlier. Again, we're not pushing BM because we own stock.
