Could you please see if the list I mention below fits the GNOME
terminal as well?

It's in lisp/term/pc-win.el.  I created that list by looking at X
colors and text-mode colors on the same display (using an X client for
MS-Windows).  These colors should be good for consoles which use PC
displays, but I don't know how well do they work on xterm.  I also
don't know how to determine whether 8 or 16 colors are supported.  For
these two reasons, this list is used only in the MS-DOS and W32 ports,
for now.  But if it turns out to be good on Unix tty's, we could make
it more widely used.

That's true.  However, since as I understand, the main rationale for
colors on tty's was the GNU/Linux console, we might as well make the
colors suitable for that case.
