"This is basically next-generation picture enhancement and it is not something we can endorse. We do not agree with the sentiment that a TV's job is to enhance the picture. In our view, a TV's job is to respect the content (colors, frame rate etc) and present it in the most accurate way possible."
Whilst I broadly agree with that point of view - and it's clearly a problem if TVs produce bad colors, and introduce artefacts into the image - it's worth remembering that TVs are dealing with the consequences of standards, the quality of equipment available/affordable, and the passage of time. Creators didn't choose to have cinema projectors run at 24fps, or TVs to run at 25/30fps in different regions, or their films or videotape showing signs of degradation after 30 years of use and/or storage.
I don't necessarily think it's wrong for TVs to produce the "best" images they can over the widest amount of content - even though I agree that the quality of processing that exists in TVs to date causes more problems than it solves.
