Stop pushing so hard. I am not disagreeing with you about the transfer function being compression. I even stated that.
The point of disagreement is your claim that these curves are related to the displays. They are not. They are related to the available channel bandwidth and human visual perception. As long as you have 8-bit channels the transfer curve of sRGB remains a valid way to compress the data, regardless of display advances.
