Ah, THIS article definitely paints different, much darker picture about
those monitors (from 2018 perspective). It clearly states you need GPU
calibration for those to work nicely. I wonder if they mean something like
xcalib work on loading gamma tables or also using actual 3d hardware for
color correction?

This is partially reason why I thought about full-screen external Color
Management plugin - cingg may not have any real display-side color
correction but if you just start external process before entering
fullscreen and stop after (assuming single monitor setup) you will have
your more accurate colors in fullscreen ( HDR dynamic metadata also
apparently can be only send in fullscreen mode, even in Windows!).

So, I propose giant external "hack" when it comes to workflow :) with
slight advantage you do not need to wait on me/anyone until any CM arrives
(if ever!) to cingg!
