The CEA seems pretty clear on what's CE versus IT equipment and from their perspective a compliant IT monitor should also shift to RGB Limited given a CE resolution.
With regard to Pioneers failure to handle the quantization bits, it would be interesting to know if this is a industry-wide issue or if some manufacturers got it right.
When my CE friends (I must be a consultant, yeah that's the ticket) checked such things they found the byte was unused so they don't use it either. Since the only new colorspace information in byte 3 is extended colorimetry you can be fully functioning while ignoring it -- if you follow the CE versus IT "requirement". This does imply anyone doing xvYCC (not Pioneer, I got my vendors confused earlier) has to at least parse byte 3 even if they ignore the other bits.
By the way, I'm encouraging them to start setting it. For purely selfish reasons of course, I'd like to know if the KRP will do the right thing with explicit quantization.
