Hi Hans, All,
I find this nomenclature confusing and a little confusing from a design standpoint!
Color of the text background should be separate from the rest of the cell background
the names should reflect to what they apply
That said we should have: CTBGC == Cell text background color CTC == Cell text color
CBGC == Cell background color or CC == Cell color
CBGCR == Cell background color in the space right of text CBGCM == Cell background color in space middle of cell( above below text) CBGCL == Cell background color in the space right of text
True, these are a lot of options/parameters, yet it offers the most flexibility and a cleaner interface. Furthermore, one can understand the names of the parameters.
preamble scanning is already quite tricky and there was already CR CM CL so adding CT was a few lines of extra code
(i will probably make a key/val based variant some day but that is no fun either ... 10 lines of setup per table instead of a one line preeamble)
(and i'm forbidden to fundamentally change an important mechanism like tabulate right now as for sure it will break some things)
Another, advantage is that one could and at a later point a feature for inverting the color of the text according cell color and/or text background color.

i.e. we already had CL CM and CR, so CT is new .. should be wikified.
The wiki  describes these \C* commands:
\CR color is applied to the background of the text and the remaining space on the right; \CC color is applied to the background of the text only; \CM color is applied to the background of the text and the remaining space on both sides; \CL color is applied to the background of the text and the remaining space on the left.
What does CT do differently than CC? It's not quite clear from the example.
If your question is of interest to others as well, please add an entry to the Wiki!
