Yup.  However!  Note that those values are only guaranteed minimums.  You can query RED_BITS with the FBO bound (or the renderbuffer param RENDERBUFFER_RED_SIZE) to see what you actually got.  For example, in our impl on the desktop, you'll actually get 32-bit RGBA for RGBA4 or RGB5_A1, and 24-bit RGB for RGB565.

Yeah, I understand the concern.  Our main goal was to create a common baseline; extensions can then add some additional functionality as appropriate to relax some of the constraints.  It's much easier to do this (on both developers and implementors) than it is to have an overly broad/unrestricted spec, and then have to go through lots of pain on mobile implementations.
