It seems that there is far too much technology involved behind the 18%
gray debate. What I had heard in the past is that the 18% was based
on the average brightness outdoors on a sunny day. This probably
feeds into many other design aspects such as the design of film.
For TV production, it should be obvious that every production would
have a different average brightness without some sort of visual (or
other measurement) reference. Having uniform production is important
for TV, and less so for feature films.
