For me missing files (deadlinks) are in grey color like on the attached screenshot, but only after attempt to play them (this works same as in MM4 though).
So am I missing something or there is a difference against MM4?

OK, I have just found a difference. It's not for deadlinks, but for Audio CD in library that is not inserted in the drive:

Yes, I am talking about files in the main tracklist, but it is not only for Audio CDs. For example, if someone replace HDs.

You could saw it in my animated screenshot in another issue. Here is MM4 with one file in the Library that is missing. In fact, all files from the same drive are missing, but I had only that file in that test.

Since you mentioned missing files in the Playing list, I have another related suggestion. Let me know if I should open another issue for it.

If I drag&drop M3U file that has missing referenced media files into the Playing list, the missing files will be in the same color as other files until the program tries to play them. Winamp will display such files in different background color immediately when you drop M3U file into its Playlist.

I have used that option to quickly check M3U files for missing media files since I don't need to play all these files just to find out if any of them is missing.

Yes, it is case for all inaccessible medias.

=> Fixed in

How about my another suggestion?

Yes, without trying to access them MM can't know whether they are playable and accessing files can take 20 or more seconds when files are located e.g. on NAS.
So this needs to be done in another background task.
i.e. feel free to enter this as separate issue.
