Cryptomatte not precise enough

Cryptomatte seems to be eroded or feathered inward, leaving a halo around the edge.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error: Duplicate default cube multiple times, enable cryptomatte by object, enable 'Accurate Mode', render in Cycles with CPU. In the compositor, isolate a cube with the cryptomatte, use a color>multiply node to give it a color, and put it on top of the original image with an Alpha Over node. Observe halo.

This is a limitation of Cryptomatte. While it does produce accurate masks, it does not have the information to separate colors accurately. For that something like Deep EXR would be needed.
