As I mentioned Im not relly sure of the details, so take this with a grain of salt, but software has to be written/modified to support the 256 color mode. If memory serves me correctly the screenmode comes directly from a framebuffer in the indivision or something like that. I think there was a downside to its potential as well, maybe something like only a simple api to use it and no further development.

I really cant recall properly, and as I dont have an ecs machine even let alone an IndiECS, I didnt take a lot of notice when it was being spoken about. Perhaps a browse of youtube might give some more details.

If Im not mistaken though the IndiECS p96 driver was actually an april fools joke?
