I'm using an Amiga (Commodore 1080) monitor.  I'm not sure which variant I
have, but it has chroma & luma jacks (luma also doubles as the composite
input), a DB9 RGB connector and mono sound.  I recall that I had to hack it
a little bit to make it accept the CoCo's sync signals.

Artifact colors look just like they do on RGB - black and white.  Luckily,
chances are any monitor that can do S-video will also be able to do
composite video and anyone could simply switch to composite to see artifact
