the cross-posting is prefectly fine. I wanted to ask the GIMP
developers to join this list anyway. There hasn't been much traffic
lately but CMS is an important aspect and it would make a lot of sense
to discuss standards in that area since GIMP will want to use them
sooner or later. Actually I was hoping for sooner but so far no work
has been started on improving the color display filter API to allow
for better color management. If anyone is interested in improving GIMP
in this area, please let me know.

Sounds like a reasonable decision. As a first step we should change
the color proof display filter to install these directories as
shortcuts in the file chooser used to select profiles.
