    Why can I choose my display gamma?

      I know this is a frequent topic, but it just doesn't click, I don't get it.

       

      Why can I choose a target gamma when calibrating my display? Doesn't this make softproofing impossible?

       

      Dot gain etc. leads to unambiguous TRCs for output profiles. An IT-8 target plus setpoint value tables creates unambiguos TRCs for scanner profiles. Why doesn't my colorimeter + profiling software create a "correct" curve for my display?
