People that actually use calibrators on their monitors may actually
care what the actual curves are.  I certainly do like to have access
to it, if only as a point of interest.

Although, the actual usefulness of the data is still debatable since,
IIRC, it's data RandR caches, and not what's on the CRTC hardware.
