I wonder if it is similar to what I find here as simply red jasmine rice. Do you think the "coral" describes its color?

I think there's more than one type of red rice from Thailand. In any case, Coral Red rice is red throughout. That is, it doesn't have just a red hull. In mixes with white rices, it imparts its color throughout the pot. I use it (and honestly, a whole lot of other varieties) interchangeably in my rice cooker. I mix with other rices, being mindful that it will color them, and I cook it on it's own for a slightly richer grain than white rices.

I like using red rice for its eye appeal as much as anything. I've used it for red beans and rice and most recently jambalaya.

The variety of rice that the bulk bin exercise opened up is exciting! I loved the photo of the purple rice. I recently found some glutinous red rice, yet to be cooked up. Looks like basically, they are all rice with common cooking parameters -- the fine tuning is up to us, so keep posting your discoveries.
