Don't really see a reason for the change. In the production you usually
have a dedicated steps which are to be done in the display space (for
example, grading). And those steps are not gonna to be all of a sudden
moved from one display device to another one, that'd ruin everyone's day.

Even if the colors are stored in the scene linear space you can't be sure
that changing display device, say, from sRGB screen to XYZ projector would
preserve the same exact look and feel.

There're just stuff which is to be done in display space and stuff which is
to be done in the scene linear space. You need to be aware of this.

It might be, however, some stuff which is wrongly being supposed to happen
in the display space.
