I have to fully comply with Alastair! Many times I had a problems with chart 
reading. The problem arises in case of special inks (thermo transfer for 
example) or in case of jet printing  with three drop sizes. Both - in usable 
ink volume margins.
In such cases there may be high device non-linearity, which can be taken in 
account at first step by simple gamma in targen. IMHO the gamma coefficient for 
device space in targen can help in difficult cases to achieve the much more 
optimal patch spreading and robust chart reading by instrument in strip/auto
