Yes, but this approach wouldn't work, lot of other properties that can
cause problems when not reset, like plane alpha and blend mode. I don't
see why gamma is special in that case.

If userspace did set it to some special value, then presumably it knows
how to reset it too. It would be different if the split gamma mode was
the default. Then I would understand this, but right now this would
even break s/r.
