That is the policy we have in i915. We have a vague plan to add
a new property for the user to select the encoding explicitly
(which would also allow things like YCbCr 4:4:4), but IIRC no
one has actually sent a patch for that.
CTA-861 sort of seems to say that one should favor YCbCr over
RGB iff both sides support it, but I think RGB is probably the
better default because it means straight passthrough (minus the
annoying full->limit quantization range trickery).
