I made the original silly posting only to point out that to a question like this, all the answers will be opinions. Somebody's "realistic" is just plain ugly and cruel to someone else.

Just as with most of those "color science" discussions. You could bring other aspects of "copying reality" on the list of themes for discussion, and every point would be just as serious or silly.

Color science discussions are higly relevant for people who do reproduction work or catalogs where colors have to be displayed faithfully. This is what I have concluded. Other than that, you go with your feelings and personal preferences.
People are funny: The less they have factual data the more emotional they get.

edit: Badly defined concepts and sloppy thinking stir up the emotions as well.

Did you read my OP?
