I suspect the fact remains that many who view on the web may not be aware of colour management and probably have their nice new LCD's set at some high brightness settings (as in out of the box condition) which will not be displaying the image as optimal i.e. as the author intended.

Of course that is no reason to be sloppy at our end and we should make every effort to ensure the best image goes out to all who are likely to view.
I totally disagree with you here. Editing anything has different requirements than content consumption. Ideally you want a stable device that stays on target as much as possible. You can argue other devices may be off, but they may be off in a variety of ways. Everything viewed on them is also viewed in context. If one photo or video looks ugly and flat due to the display, so will the next. Does that make sense? Editing anything with brightness really high also throws me off. The jump between shadows and highlight values is just too insane and can make things falsely appear flat during intermediate phases. My only other reference for you is televisions. They're mass produced consumer items, yet broadcast displays can still cost several thousand dollars.
