Can you outline the udev properties? How do they relate to which device

kolor-manager is explicitely mentioned with new features in my original 
post. And you answere with a link to a page under your control which 
still states that that very project is dead. Biased was only a polite 
expression. If you want to criticise stay on facts not fiction and skip 
such unpolite links. We are not on the Gnome marketing channel here.

Then a profile editor needs to be in place to remove the serial entry for 
instance and remain the colorimetrical, manufacturer and model strings or 
extend those string to certain values and ranges. I would suggest IccXML 
for that. A tutorial could explain howto.
