Well, I guess that there are several answers to this. One is that calibrating from either 100% or 75% intensity is a standard option in just about every calibration package I have ever used. Second, it is always better to sample more, rather than less, of the gamut. Third, many displays simply won't track well at 100% intensity. In such cases, 75% intensity is the obvious alternative. Fourth, 75% intensity is probably more typical of viewing material, though higher intensity is certainly not unheard of.
ChromaPure's Advanced Color Management option, which is what SOWK shows above
, offers the opportunity to sample the color space at 4 levels of intensity, 4 levels of saturation, and then 4 levels of saturation at 3 levels of intensity. The 125-point calibration not only samples, but also corrects, at multiple levels of saturation and intensity throughout the entire gamut.
