We don't support such methods with any other color modes, they all
rely on terminfo and/or special-purpose terminal commands Emacs issues
at startup time.

I agree that being able to enable/disable color modes from .emacs
would be a nice feature, if it is possible, but the new 24-bit color
mode is not the odd one out here.

I don't think that xterm supports this mode.
