Ok, I'll add a paragraph at the end of the section:

| In frames of type SANE_FRAME_GRAY, when the bit depth is 1 there are
| only two sample values possible, 1 represents minimum intensity
| (black) and 0 represents maximum intensity (white). For all other bit
| depth and frame type combinations, a sample value of 0 represents
| minimum intensity and larger values represent increasing intensity. 

"The combination of bit depth 1 and SANE_FRAME_RGB (or SANE_FRAME_RED,
SANE_FRAME_GREEN, SANE_FRAME_BLUE) is rarely used and may not be
supported by every frontend."
