Importing full range RGB stills in FCP

Hello everybody. I want to import a still file which has been coded in the video range values (black and white are 16 and 235 respectively, instead of 0 and 255). When I change the sequence settings, if I set the "Process maximum white as" setting (in the "Video Processing" tab) to Super-White, FCP takes the value 235 as the 100% white, with higher values entering the SuperWhite area of the waveform. But there's no setting to put the black level to 16, so black is displayed at 6% IRE instead of 0%.

Is there any way to import stills that use the standard video levels instead of CG levels into FCP?
