Is this what you wanted?

The line between washed out and good is a bit weird to me, apparently.

also:
I made a chart which contains:
lines: squares at brightness levels starting at 50 and going up to 100 (pure white)
columns: outlines with a value level starting at 45 and going down to 0 (true black)

I think you meant those the other way around.

For this simple example I want to pin down the area where background, outline and the square look as a whole nice to your eye.

My impression is that the color of the background is actually a lot more important to what good outline colors are, rather than the color of the outlined thing. Except if the outlined thing is very dark, in which case the outline has to be a bit darker for the sake of contrast.
