Will Hollingworth seems to had a rebutal to this argument. At least that's
what he alluded in his last post :

But it's not clear to me what the argument is (I have not read his white
paper :'( But I'd certainly like to know more about why this not being a
limiting factor in the context of wide gamut displays.

But the pull back would have to be selective, Roberto. We don't want to pull
back the cyans by much, you know.
