I thought that as well. But then I had a second look and it seems that
using the term "image" is wrong here. The tools do work on masks and
channels in images with indexed colors. They just don't work on layers
in such images. But I agree that the term "Indexed Layer" is somewhat
strange. But so is the term "Indexed Image". We should probably use
something along the lines of "layers with indexed colors".
