Mid-grey is certainly /one/ standard, but it is not the only one - white
being another (e.g. the default material for geometric primitives in DAZ
studio).

White has the decided advantage over mid-grey in that it is well-defined
in terms of gamma: White is always white.

Also, with `diffuse` defaulting to a value below 1.0, it is effectively
not pearly white.

It will be more correct for people who don't use the `right
x*image_width/image_height` idiom. Which is pretty much the point of it ;)
