A no brainer really isn't it?
Engineers may give a real-world figure.
But by the time Marketing gets hold of it... :-)

Still early days, early days.

One nice idea I saw is making a flat plate LED. Philips have done this.
One huge array of OLEDs in the form of a flat square about 3" square. Rather like a
tiny laptop screen.

That'd allow tank and lighting designers a field day in designing radically new
looking lamp housings.
If I had any money to invest in, I'd put it in a lighting company using these items.
Lighting in the home in the next 10 years is going to be very very different.
