Yes, we still support uploading textures as GL_COLOR_INDEX because we have to. 
However, we have not supported using indexed formats for render targets or
actual internal texture formats for some time.  In fact, I recently removed the
metadata about indexed formats from format_info.c.

Yes, I got that.  As I said above, we still need to handle it in texture upload
because it's forever part of the GL spec.  However, we would rather keep it out
of core as much as possible.
