It's low level mkii, never meant for usage outside core code (in this 
case in mkii it is used for typesetting color overviews); mkiv still has 
the same high level commands but different low level ... nothing to 
worry about. The only high level commands that were dropped in mkiv were 
those dealing with obsolete technologies, encodings and such)
