It is mostly 1. It isn't really 3 because they went away then [half of them came back](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-color/#css-system-colors) which is kind of an antipattern.

And then we have [named colors aka X11 colors](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-color/#named-colors) which are

1a. Using this is a bad idea (but if you do, here's how it works) and while we can't get rid of them we also won't add any more so please stop asking; nor can we rename them or change what they mean.
