Can you point me to literature/web that details why this is
so? I am assuming that as an analogue device, that the electrons
hitting the phosphors are the limiting component in determining
colour capability - the number of dots/ and quality of phosphor is
the problem? And also, what determines the number of colours
when graphics DACs have been limited to 8 bits per channel, have
the testers been using specialised hardware to drive the electron
guns to create a broader spectral test base?

Again, I can remember the same points being made of monitors and
flashy 16 bit (655)  depth cards way back when.
