In the PR text 4.3.6 Colors still include a link to a 'gamma correction' section (present in previous texts, under 14.3), which has been removed.

Conforming user agents may limit their color-displaying efforts to performing a gamma-correction on them. sRGB specifies a display gamma of 2.2 under specified viewing conditions. User agents should adjust the colors given in CSS such that, in combination with an output device's "natural" display gamma, an effective display gamma of 2.2 is produced. See the section on gamma correction for further details. Note that only colors specified in CSS are affected; e.g., images are expected to carry their own color information.

I'm not sure how much the whole paragraph makes sense now. Removing 'See the section on gamma correction for further details.' would be a could step forward.
