One edit so far -- highlighted with underscore and bold typeface.
Having lived with the USER setting for over a week, I decided to re-visit the STANDARD setting
to align it more with the USER. Basically, I did less modification of the MIDDLE color temperature,
tweaking the factory setting just enough to lose the pink and green variations across the spectrum.
By doing so, there was no need to alter the TINT setting for Yellow in order to get fleshtones right. WRONG - lemon faces required a -15
adjustment to the Yellow HUE. What's with HDTV and yellow faces?
This setting is 'drier' than the USER setting, with more restrained color, though the World Cup field
and jerseys still have plenty of saturation -- it's mostly the fleshtones that the setting plays down.
The minimum Light Sensor setting is bumped up to keep the low-light image crisp. Feedback?...

Let me know what you think.
I'm going to leave the set on Standard to get comments
in the household. So far, it's a toss-up, though I prefer the lush color of the USER setting so far. This setting has a warmer (pinker) bright white.
I would recommend the USER setting for black and white sources...
