what 16-bit changes?  if you mean

    Added limited support for "point" mappings from mode "I" to mode "L".
    Only 16-bit values are supported (other values are clipped), the lookup
    table must contain exactly 65536 entries, and the mode argument must
    be set to "L".

it means exactly what it says: you can use point() to convert from "I" to "L",
as long as the lookup table contains exactly 65536 entries.

the current version of PIL only supports 24-bit RGB.
