I'm curious - how is this a bug? Shouldn't we support the full brightness scale available on the hardware?

Should we allow a computer to go completely dark? NO, and Windows doesn't let it go dark.
As a consumer I prefer their approach to handle screen brightness to yours (if you really allow this).

This is a bug, you should never put a user in this situation.
