Arnold procedural and user_data_rgb

I'm using a cloner to clone several objects, and I'm using the Fields Color of the Plain Effector. I apply an Arnold shader using user_data_rgb and select Display Color (Mograph Shader) and apply it to the cloner. The Arnold shader is correctly reading the colors from the Mograph Shader. Next, I want to replace the objects using Arnold procedurals and I use .ass files. The problem is that the Arnold shader does not seem to work with the procedural. The color of all the objects are black.

If you export an object to an ASS file, its display color is set to black. The procedural does not override it in this case. What you can do as a workaround, is to open the .ass file with a text editor and remove the lines

 declare display_color constant RGB
 display_color 0 0 0 

from the polymesh. Then the display_color defined on the procedural should be used in the render.
