Well, for instance a digital camera we might want to map to a serial
number or model number.

Well, I didn't know kolor manager had an active community. I've
removed the bit about it being a dead project, apologies.

Dude, relax. I pointed you to a specific part of the page where I
discuss how GCM maps the profile to the device. I figured that was a
relevant link, considering we were discussing how profiles should map
to devices.

No, I disagree. Any time we force the user to "edit a profile" then
we've failed to provide a good user experience. If editing involves
looking at and changing XML, then I double disagree.

If there is no agreed standard on how to treat the dict tag, then I
would ask you to prefix all the keys with "oy-", and I'll prefix all
mine with "gcm-" and then we can agree on common parts later.
