There is a difference between bright and accurate like Sony BVM and bright but way too high color temperature like Sony XBR970 in its default mode. (over 10k lol)
Not exactly. So long as the skin color of people is ok the average consumer doesn't care (within reason of course) that the ocean is too blue, the grass is too green, the corvette is too red, etc., etc., etc. Not on the showroom floor, and not at home.
Also: High color temperature and "wacked gamma" as you say is never confused with their impression of sharp. You can have an incredibly soft picture with absurdly high color temperature rendering blue whites and whacked gamma and they'll still call it "blurry".
