I suspect you're placing the blame for what you're seeing in the wrong place. It's not the plasma. And rainbows on plasmas? Sorry, I've never seen one on my Fujitsu. On, DLPs, absolutely. But not on a plasma. And I'm not yet blind.
Bingo! This whole discussion reminds me of one we had several years ago regarding false contouring. I discovered, through my own experimenting with my Panasonic 34" CRT HDTV, that what people were accusing plasmas of, was in some cases SOURCE related. I well remember seeing some false contouring on my Fujitsu plasma on Man In The Iron Mask. When I took that same DVD to my Panasonic CRT, there it was.... precisely the same false contouring, to the same degree, as was shown on my plasma. This is not to say that earlier plasmas (and some lower end units today) don't exhibit false contouring on their own, but people are way to quick to blame a display for what may well be source related.
How do people know that some trailing issues are not inherent in some of the video cameras that are being used? Some of these issues are just not as simple as some think they are.
