I don't know why they use the word "monochrome" whatsoever, since they 
don't mention specifically what colors to use in the palette. I take it 
they can be anything, just like they can for PNG, TIFF and QuickTime. It 
would of course be nice to have a Media Player that actually is able to 
play raw 1-bit AVI files, but it seems they've overlooked that part for 
some reason.
