I agree. Scene light has a very specific definition in the context of capture and in the color grading/correction world. In our context here, we should avoid getting into mappings from scene-referred to display-referred systems, which are usually highly subjective and depend on the desired creative "look."

Chris C,

One concern I have is the term scene light.
If this means scene-referred, then thatís a problem as sRGB is defined only for display light, not for scene light.
So then additional conversions would be needed to convert sRGB to canvas.
And if scene light doesnít mean scene-referred then what does it mean? It causes confusion.
Please find a way to stay in display-referred color space.

FYI, I have updated the PR to rely more heavily on standard broadcast terminology, and included a (hopefully-clarifying) definitions section at the top.
