YCbCr is based on RGB. By definition, YCbCr can at best match RGB. A
math transform is used to compute a luminance value, and then blue and
red difference values from luminance, just as you say.
Simon sez that there is "not a loss of available colour" but "loss of
color" seems open to definition. The range of color may not be
altered much but YCbCr is missing discrete colors which are supported
by the same number of bits of RGB. A colorist's trained eyes would
likely notice the difference in many cases.
