I'm not sure I follow what you're saying.  If you mean are those the
only ANSI colors?  Yes.  There are 16 ANSI colors: black, red, green,
yellow, blue, magenta, cyan, gray -- and the bold/intense versions of
those.  There are also blinking versions of those sixteen, however,
the color is the same.

If you mean support for other color standards besides ANSI -- what
else is there?  Oh, sure, you could probably support Avatar, but
there's no reason to.  So, there's pretty much only the ANSI standard
(that seems a bit redundant if you know what ANSI stands for) when it
comes to color codes.
