I think this is a great question, maybe because the lcd panels are easily available as oem or that plasma panels are more manufacturing intensive to build? Panasonic does make dual link cards for the plasma displays and if you put a Davio or a Truelight box on one or Lightspace and a probe to build a display lut you are probably pretty well off.
