Wendell R. Breland 12 bit, 4:2:2 because there are many more steps between black and white + Deep color. Bit depth determines number of steps, X:X:X determines color to luminance sample ratio.

IMO, there is little chance that we will see more than 8 bit, 4:2:0 in the near future for home use. As it stands H.265 (HEVC) will need extensions ratified in order to accommodate anything greater than 8 bit, 4:2:0.

ADD: Also, the more bits you have the greater the S/N ratio. 8 bit ≈ 48 dB, 10 bit ≈ 60 dB, 12 bit ≈ 72 dB. In the real world these numbers will be different but you get the jest of it.
