Well actually, if the program chroma were consistenly and commensurately as
hot as the 100% bars, that would tell me that those bars were actually 75%
and needed to be tweaked as such to bring program chroma to where it
belongs.  Make sense?

On the other hand, the grey scale will tell you whether they are 100 or 75%.
