My desk monitor, a HP one, does inform the OS about colour space emulation changes. It triggers a EDID rescan. On osX that works flawless and the correct profile is loaded or generated. The OS can detect the emulation change by parsing the colorimetric part in EDID. That part is as well used to generate ICC profiles on the fly, when no other profile is avalable. libXcm can do the parsing under Linux/osX.
