Yes. This has always been a major concern of mine. I want no color skewing in a white screen. The color skewing can be due to color correction, and this can lead to a lack of proper contrast scaling in a given color range. Basically, it can skew the black level, and give a false impression of contrast depth, the same way a INVAR shadow mask and tinted dark tube can do with a direct view CRT.
It works, in a strange way, but pushes the CRT too hard. It prematurely ages the sets. The proper contrast scaling of a CRT is with the right set up, with a NTSC calibrated 'grayish' tube, and in dark room. THEN you get proper scaling, that isn't falsely skewed, so that EVERY scene looks 3-d like, which is NOT correct. I am not interested in pushing my CRT PJ too hard (because the screen is absorbing too much of it's output) to get a 'impression' a 3-d image.
I am trying very hard to find a way around this as a problem (and largely have), and it was amongst my very FIRST considerations when getting into the screen business.
