I think we have to stay away from these arguments for supporting HSL. 
 I've worked with video and computer equipment most of my life and 
I've never used HSL for anything.  RGB makes the most sense to a lot 
of people, CMYK makes more sense to other people, and HSL makes alot 
of sense to even other people.  But we can be quite sure that RGB is 
likely the most natural specification for computers considering the 
structure of CRTs since the very early days...
