"Leakage into the blue channel from the IR" ??  Shouldn't this
be "leakage into the blue channel from the UV"?  Or, "leakage
into the red channel from the IR?

You lost me on that....

Ideally NASA should have put a  neutral gray patch within the
field of view of the camera, and then adjusted the monitors and
printing systems to render that patch neutral gray.  Then the
other colors would closely approximate the way they would be
seen by the human eye (and mind) if a human could be standing at
the camera location.  That's how we do it in photography and
videography under any sort of lighting.
