Maybe somone more knowledgeable than I can explain what needs to be onscreen to do the measuring.

Sure. What's measured, cd/m2, white point and more has to be measured so an ICC profile can be produced that is used to produce a preview.

So there's zero reason anyone would futz with a light meter. One needs a Colorimeter, or a Spectrophotometer and software to actually measure what's necessary to build a display profile that defines device behavior for color managed previews. Simple.
