[Tig] LUTs from production - how useful are they?

On one level, every correction is a Look-Up Table, since it is really  
a re-map of one set of values to another.

In Apple COLOR, LUTs are composed by creating a "Primary In"  
correction and saving it to a special bin.  Then it can be loaded as  
a global transform in a common-ish format that is advertised to be  
compatible with a number of other systems.

But the decaying accuracy of terminology is alarming.  I'm asked to  
"color" projects and to book "coloring" sessions, or to "font" a  
scene with a lower-third...   "pan" up or down on a scene, every form  
of recorded media is a "fillum"...
