One reason why popularity of wg monitors is very very low is because 99% of image usage, as in printing photos for home us, photo enlargements, professional offset printing, or tv... none of them can show wide gamut.. so your image ends up looking not like you see it on your personal wg monitor

The gamut has getting bigger as time goes by... Today the dye-sublimation, photographic inkjets do have a gamut bigger than sRGB in some parts... Also to proper soft proofing to a modern CYMK, sRGB is also not enough.

sRGB is sooo poor that does not even cover the cyan from a ColorCheker...
