When an index is above the number of colors that the terminal supports, nano
should simply bring the index into range: blank the upper bits.

That is a terrible idea. Everything would be clamped to white and would be
unreadable on a white background.

??  No, only the indexes 0-15 would get reduced to 0-7.  Anything above 15...
I don't know.

Bright should never mean bold.  Bright should stop meaning also bold, as it
does now.

That would break compatibility with existing syntaxes and require everything
to be converted to use the bold attribute.
Okay.  So the "bright" prefix has to continue to mean A_BOLD, only the
"bright" attribute should mean just bright.
