Well... I'm not sure I agree here. I'd say that the ability to use profiles and convert from rgb data with a known profile to the apps internal representation is a good thing, simple to achieve and would make life for artists easier. And similar, actually, for using the monitor profile.

Without that, I'm not sure that we'll ever be able to render an image the same in Krita and in MyPaint, which sucks for artists who go back and forth.
