[Tig] Avid Dailies

I'm doing more and more editorial dailies for Avid Media Composer.

Resolve defaults to rendering DNxHD36 files at broadcast safe 64-940 levels.  This looks absolutely correct in Avid outputting to a Rec709 monitor.
However, Avid does not apply a Rec709 ish curve to the internal Viewer windows (like Final Cut does) and so the dailies tend to look washed out on the Avid Viewers on a RGB computer monitor.

Is there a case for rendering out editorial proxies at full range for projects where the editor doesn't really use a Rec709 monitor?
