What? Linking to your own article? Mercy!
IF you have a technical issue with the piece, I'm all ears.
This isn't by the way the only article on the subject. Would you care for other links?
The biggest difference in the Color Theory group and the links you provided is that the Color Theory is a forum, where one can post questions and theorems. It does help to have feedback (even if you have to take a few darts).
Unless the group of moderators decides they will not post this (its heavily moderated) or Dan decides the subject is no longer about promoting his classes and books, then the topics are often closed. I have plenty of examples of this over the years if you need proof of this.
I remember the 8- vs. 16-bit debacle. It was weird, and caused a schism in the group. However, the "debate" caused my studio to test, test, test. I tend not to take web info for granted.
You did good by testing (something that many on that list refuse to do, rather they would prefer to take the list's host word for it) and to not necessarily take the web info granted.
What did I learn from that debate? In high resolution inkjet prints, the most obvious problem was the breakdown of smooth gradients in the reflections in sheetmetal (cars). Even after a single, strong curve had been applied, banding was easily visible. In heavily detailed stuff (i.e., bushes and plants in a landscape) it was impossible to detect problems caused by one applied curve.
I have no arguments with that take (its similar to mine). So what about posting to the list your findings and let's see how long it takes for that to get moderated or dismissed.
My only point about all this is the link to this list (Color Theory) is useful if you want to find a place to argue with fundamentalist flat earth, non intelligent design moderators and hosts who's actual agenda isn't to discuss either color theory or imaging facts (the high bit math is undeniable).
The reason I posted the link to Lindbloom, who IS a color scientist is to point out the silliness of both this particular Yahoo list and host and his lame arguments with respect to high bit editing. Don't even get me started on his views about wide gamut spaces or Raw processing. That's even more prehistoric in mindset.
