dont understand what you are trying to tell me, one of the reason Nikon does better is a a steeper, thicker color filter than Canon have and red does not go towards orange as one example

The human color vision "suffers" from the same "problem":

Source: Wikipedia

For accurate color reproduction, you want the three spectra to span the human vision 3D space (see this). For smooth tonality, you want something more, which roughly speaking depends on the largest eigenvalues of the color matrix. It is not that simple though because we are more sensitive to errors in some colors (like skin tones) than others. Only a psychophysical approach can answer this (they mention this in a different context).

Nothing wrong with the DXO measurements, they just do not mean what you think they do.
