Chris,

Now that many output devices (LCD monitors and inkjet printers) are shipping that are outside of the sRGB gamut, I'm not convinced that the current wording of the color module is acceptable any longer.

Shouldn't CSS3 consider using scRGB instead, or saying something different about how to deal with RGB values that are out of the sRGB range (the current wording only states that they should be clipped if outside the device's gamut, but says nothing about dealing with devices outside of the sRGB gamut).
