75" is a BIG screen... >100" is an immersive experience!

In order for projectors to even come close to reproducing true HDR they will have to get brightness levels way up and black levels way down. In addition they will have to do that in the BT2020 colorspace and produce accurate color while achieving the bright projection levels.
New LED TVs are starting to hit the 2000 and 3000 nit level which is about 600 to 900 foot-lambert equivalent. Most projectors are only producing 20 - 30 FL on a 120" screen. In addition the black levels on new fald LED tvs are equivalent or better than plasma. Projection systems on a white screen just can't hit those same levels.
HDR just doesn't translate well to projection systems. I expect that meta data will be added to HDR10 in the near future and that will help out projection systems in the future to simulate HDR better but I doubt they will ever achieve the same level of impact that HDR on a led tv can provide.

Any wrinkles now inherent will be solved by people in this forum and good companies like Oppo and Epson, take good care of their customers. If I was going for flat panel, it would be Sony. But, I love this Epson 5040UB, a little more every day. And, I don't even have my 4K disc player yet. The Oppo 203, arrives next Tuesday. You could spend your whole life waiting for something better. Waiting for a year or two and the E companies will have you salivating for 8K.

There will always be two schools of thought. One school for those who wait for perfection. And the other school for those who get to enjoy what's available now. I'm a graduate of the latter school!
