There is a point ...

are not going to utilize them.

Most of the alternative options offer limited choices to adjust the native performance of the monitor prior to generating a profile, especially when you drive the panel via DVI. So the 2690 entering such a mode with sRGB just puts it in parity with these other monitor. Except, of course, for the fact that it shines through when you need it the most, when processing images in a color-managed workflow in aRGB mode. It's like having two monitors in one and the extra cost goes to having this extra mode when color accuracy actually matters.

By the way, given the extra care with which this monitor is likely assembled, its sRGB mode may already be quite well calibrated, with the profile not needing to move tones around very much. In this case, the fact that profiling occurs through the 8-bit graphics card interface won't really degrade IQ.
