Under the usual circumstances, it's unlikely that there is any
need for a source profile per window. Typically the source
colorspace is defined by an embedded profile in input rasters,
or at the application level as a definition colorspace (ie. it's
a per rendering element thing). You'll have to explain why you
think that a per window source profile XID is at all a useful idea.
