The NTSC colour space is actually much larger than Rec.709.  It seems 
that one purpose for Rec.709 was to define a colorspace that could be 
reliably reproduced.  An advertisement claiming to be larger than NTSC 
may be faulty.  Any advertisement that the color space is broader than 
some standard surely means that the primaries don't match a standard.

If the device supports enough unique levels and has suitable built-in 
LUT capability, does it matter if the native device uses different 
primaries?
