[Openicc] common ICC profile directory

I read on the LSB site, they intent theyre standard for cross platform ABI
conformance. So I could not find any point, where to place an directory
structure at. Please correct me, if I am wrong. Ok I see now the FSH site.
... and filled (as seems usual) an bug against.
I followed the suggestions of using
/usr/share/color for global configuration data and
/usr/share/color/icc for global ICC profiles
~/.color and ~/.color/icc as user pendant.
+ imaging development / panoramas
+ color management
+ email :ku.b at gmx.de
