Add 8 bits preview for 16 bits documents without converting

To control the output of smooth gradients on export to 8bit (jpg for instance), it would be useful to simulate/preview 8 bits image while working on a 16 bit image, without converting it.
Best,

I feel like a Posterize Adjustment Layer (Levels: 255) could be used to simulate this.

would have been a very clever idea, but unfortunately the output is not the same as converting to 8bit :(  (btw my monitor can reproduce wide gamut so I see the difference 16 /8 bit especially looking at  gradients)
