[Sbse] CU values for LED fixtures

A question for the listserve --
LED luminaires sometimes show CU values greater than 1.0 for lower RCR
values. This is physically impossible, but it seems to be an artifact of
the procedures used to calculate CU.
The question >> what do designers do about this when in the range of RCR
where a CU might exceed 1.0?
A. just round down to 1.0? (knowing that even this is unlikely)
B. Round even further down? (to say 0.95 or ...)
(1) is there an industry "standard practice" on how to handle this?
(2) does the calculation quirk that leads to CUs > 1.0 flow through all
the CU values for a given fixture? (are they all x% higher than
warranted or compared to a say fluorescent fixture)
Thanks as always.
