well, it shouldnt be like that: if your scan is in 16 bit, then we should
have 16 bit precision. that is also why i would like two histograms: raw
data, and result which can be 8 bit or 16 bit.
Why shouldnt we work in terms of real 16 bit or real 8 bit numbers in
vuescan, instead of some translation in percentages, or other type of
conversion? Percentages with lots of digits behind the point give a false
suggestion of precision if the original data is not so precize.Also
percentages express the wp as a fixed part of the image, instead of giving
it a fixed value in the shadescale, which should give more repeatable
results.....(yes i know i can lock down these settings)

lab doesnt seem to be very /hue consistent . On epson-inkjet i think there
was a discussion on this issue that lab manipulations suffer from hue
