VCGT has no advantage with DP and > 8 bit/component.
Putting VCGT into the monitors LUTs would be great to come. But the
one existing device I know of on Linux is extremly slow for that feature.
Still, for most users with traditional 8-bit per component paths VCGT
means only: no software can render to the full available precission, e.g.
180 instead of 255 levels of gray. So it increases just banding for no
benefit compared to a situation without a colour server.
