For the record, I don't know how much I can trust my own THX-certified professional calibrator. He did a lot of the early stuff by eye (before white balance), and it was his first time ever working on an F8500. He thought it was interesting that even at Contrast of 99, I had zero white clipping. So he kept it there.
I won't know too much about what raising or lowering the Cell Light does for other things. If it's not too dark for you, don't worry about it. I was just saying I think your eyes can still tolerate a brighter peak white if need be.
I put Film Mode on Cinema Smooth for my Blu-rays to operate at 24 Hz. Black levels don't rise, no ABL kicking in, and it might just be my eyes, but at 60 Hz I notice an annoying flicker. 24 Hz runs just fine for me.
I haven't noticed a difference in any of the options for Black Optimizer, and I've AB'ed it to death. I put it on Dark Room anyway, for the hell of it.
