On the other hand in writer we do show the real text color and fill

Yeah, this is with High Contrast applied. In GNOME from the desktop

In impress, we seem to at least be attempting something like the
reference Stuart mentioned:

foreground and background colors, using either a combination of

If I assume that impress is basically on the right track, then this
does reasonably describe what happens in impress in High Contrast,
while things seem a bit more chaotic in writer (and calc) so I could
assume that they're currently incorrect in showing text colors and
custom bg colors.
On the other hand, in Word (2013) table bg colors are shown even in
High Contrast mode, but maybe that's a bug of its own. Unless there is
some logic to excluding tables from the mono-color scheme.
In a quick test on Windows 10 (with an older LO master as of commit
