It does add a bit of complication to the startup sequence, but it was worth it for my needs.
I can't remember if input settings are saved with user settings, but there's a limited number of user presets, and I'm already using a number of them, I don't really want to have to make two of each of them (I exaggerate a bit since my HDR presets wouldn't apply to the PC).
Doesn't the JVC, like most display devices, convert all incoming video signals to RGB 0-255 for processing purposes? It'll output whatever you want, but I'm guessing it goes through that conversion internally anyway. Besides, the conversion between is just a coefficient remapping anyway.
If done at 10+ bits it's not a big deal, and with madVR it's probably not a big deal anyway, but regardless, expanding to 0-255 just makes everything more difficult in my setup.
Though what I think it's really going to come down to is, is madVR enough better to be worth the ~$100 it's going to cost me for another Windows license to run it.... At the moment, I'm thinking not.
