I would assume that HLS or LAB might be appropriate for other mediums 
such as laser light shows or various prism based displays.  At the 
comdex show this year were a lot of those new plasma displays, and 
LCD displays, one would assume that those flat panel plasma displays 
would actually be capable of displaying more colors than the standard 
CRTs would -- particularily in the neons and pastels range...

If CSS is to truly be able to specify displays on various media then 
we have to move away from simply screen/printer formatting models.

I will however vote that CMYK should be added without question to 
support print media.
