Re: Maybe this will help.

The technical definitions given by engineering "standards" organizations are often instrumentally useful, and bear some relationship to the phenomena they are intended to describe.

But you have to understand that these are metaphoric uses of the words in question.  A standards organization is not an authority on semantics.  The subjective aspects in our judgments about "brightness" can be argued to be essential to the semantics of the term.
