Oops. 12 indeed is the cursor. 11 is background, 10 is foreground.
And the OSC 4 sequence lets you change all 256 colours, whereby the
colour number appears after the first semicolon, e.g. this turns ANSI
yellow (colour 3) up to full brightness:

No, the control sequences are available independent of the TERM setting.

I don't really mind, since they both end up in my inbox anyway, but
generally the more specific list is the better choice, initially
anyway. I do prefer bug reports and enhancement requests to go
straight to the mintty issue tracker, though.
