Not an issue with LG's display.

Actually, they can use a different blue, since you never see their blue, it's only use to make a white, which is they filtered back to a blue via a color filter.

No compensation is used. No blue "element" in the sense I think you are thinking.
They take R G and B, make white and then filter it back to R G and B sub-pixels. If the nature of the white changes, it will screw up colors over time. But the blue they use should be somewhat resilient because it's a longer-life fluorescent blue than is typically able to be used in a direct-view OLED scenario. They aren't talking up life much, which should concern people a bit, but that said, I'd imagine 20K+ hours without color shifting is within its capabilities.
As for the price, I tried not to spit up my morning iced tea.
