I think it was me you were referring to, and not the excellent Gleb A.

The concerns are pretty straightforwards:
1) Implement a half float reference space.
2) Implement proper colour transforms to and from reference.
3) Implement > 8 bit per pixel import for FFMPEG in conjunction with 1.

This essentially makes the VSE an offline / online system and potentially
takes it up to a 2017 implementation. Olly had a pretty darn clever test at
half float that seemed to work.

I've been ridiculously short on time, and also waiting on Eevee to settle
in so that any code can be reused here. I'm reasonably sure some of the API
work can be reused in the case of the display buffers.

Added you (Dominique) to the Slack. There hasn't been too much discussion
sadly due to lack of hands available for the VSE. I've tried to distill the
issues down into a wiki over at GitHub.

With respect,
