The only question I have with this palette is how close can the ST reproduce the colours. I don't currently have a cable to connect mine to the TV to see what it looks like.
As is known ST can display 512 colors, STE 4096 . In this case - optimized palette for 16 colors only - 512 colors is enough, Human eye can not distinguish so small color differences, only when they are side by side. And of course, analog displays can not too.
In case of your cat picture that's the exact problem -there are larger areas with same color - like under neck left. There is no enough colors to show it better - because 16 color limitation, and also because only 512 colors. In this case it would not look better on some STE.
Famous Schrodinger's cat hypothetical experiment says that cat is dead or alive until we open box and see condition of poor animal, which deserved better logic. Cat is always in some certain state - regardless from is observer able or not to see what the state is.
