however, I am generating a mesh parametrically instead of creating an
isosurface.
All goes well until R, G and B are all equal to zero, since xyY space
doesn't like this coordinate.
How should I handle this case? Should I just skip it and not render a
triangle there? Or is there a better way to handle it?
Thanks!

My recommendation would be to go as close to 0 as you can (e.g. 1e6).
If you feel like it, you can add some hardcoded triangles from there to
(x,y,Y)=(0,0,0) to get a closed shape.

Plotting the triangles to (x,y,Y)=(0,0,0) or very near there is not
going to produce nice/correct results. See the attached image. Those
triangles would look very much out of place.

The "closure" to (0,0,0) was only suggested as a final addon.
What you need to do is take R,G,B to a very small value (e.g. 1e6)
separately.
It may be sufficient to plot the (distorted) cube as usual, but every
time /any/ R,G,B coordinate drops to zero you replace that value with
1e6 instead.
Then again maybe that's not enough, and you may need to increase your
cube's resolution near (0,0,0).

In my mind, the point RGB=0,0,0 corresponds to the surface that "caps"
the bottom of your 3D shape. ie the one where Y=0 and is bordered by the
classic "horseshoe". Any point on that "cap" would be RGB=0 because Y=0.

I couldn't figure out what values to use for x and y, so I just skipped
those points.
