for single-component formats, the name of the component plays
practically no role. Even if said component was really red,
it makes little difference to either side.

For example, the OpenGL straight up refers to all single component
image formats as only using the red component:

OpenGL only allows "R", "RG", "RGB", or "RGBA"; other
combinations are not allowed as internal image formats.


In truth it would of course be nice if the world agreed on
not making the name of data structures imply some way they
are to be processed, but humanity hasn't gotten there yet.
