So the normal behavior in CSS for handling out-of-range or invalid
values is to treat them as parse errors.  Since device gamuts vary,
we don't want to do that here.  So I think the spec needs to say
something so that it's clear that the colors specified should
somehow be mapped into the device gamut rather than dropped.

Is there a more general term than "mapped" that you would prefer?
