That was only one of his goals. He also wanted something that included the 
gamuts of various charts (multiple versions of the ColorChecker) and film 
stocks, and had efficiency and various other requirements (to reduce 
posterization, etc.). I don't think anybody else has put as much thought into a 
color space as Bruce did into BetaRGB. All color spaces are compromises one way 
or another, whether you want them to be or not; the only questions are what 
you're going to compromise. Bruce found a really, really good balance.
