There's more than one way to do this.  Simple approach:

Define three CDEFs, for instance R,Y and G.  R is your current CDEF.
Y is the same as R however with a MAXimum of 95; G has a maximum of

Now plot, in this order, an AREA for R,Y and G.

The CDEF for Y could be:


This is: if (R>95) return 95 else return R

A slightly better way would be to use CDEF and STACK, this means
calculating the appropriate values for Y and R (which should be
NaN in case the percentage isn't high enough).  STACK Y on top
of AREA G and STACK R on top of STACK Y.  This has a disadvantage
of the legend being in the wrong order would you decide to use
a legend.
