As Kai-Uwe says, if you have CM running, an implicit assumption of sRGB
becomes a good way for apps to deal with the rest of the world, be it in
output or input; they can rely on the system to sRGB to the display
profile, or to print sRGB as best it can. And really smart apps can request
the registered display profile or printer profile.
