One may get used to it without liking it... in many sessions, the most
unfriendly chroma transitions in hottest whites that result from
running legal limiting cause me to rethink my color approach entirely.
I think I'm even tending now toward the more neutral balance in
general, because I dislike so much having the whites devoid of chroma
when that differs from a tone applied across the greyscale.  Most
unnatural-looking and inorganic in some situations.

ah yes, and what we do for the clients in perceived added value is how
they separate the good colorist from the also-ran.
