It may have started out to go into the Coco3 but got pushed out to 
say a COCO 4 that got axed. I have seen that done before on other 
products that I have worked on. Several features had delayed 
introduction due to time constraints to market. 

This could have been a issue with the COCO3. Microware did SEC 
and to add support for 8 bit color in the software could have delayed 
the release and therefore the feature canceled for another later
