if we are really talking about a shade - a CAD program isn't build to do something like that.

But if you can live with hatches - that will work in many kinds of pattern or also in many different solid colors.

Yes, as far as I know gradients are supported in DXF / DWG for hatches, so if there is a demand for that, why not? ;)
