Color is both the luminance value and the saturation, so while you may not change saturation much, maybe not at all, luminance changes, making the color not the same color anymore.
Unless you have the correct luminance, saturation and gamma level the source was encoded as, no matter how much more you may like it, it's not correct anymore. You've then become a subjective colorist, which is fine, but what I said is true, the accuracy can't be vouched for any longer.
If I were basing it on what the reps told me, then I'd be telling all of you to keep it in Cinema1 because, by sheer luck, you're getting back some of the DCinema colors not in REC 709, that aren't there in the first place, at the fringe of the DCinema color space. I don't see why it's better to have a handful of colors correct by luck, compared to having all colors correct but missing some of the really saturated colors, that you don't ever comment on seeing anyway.
