Sure, colord can do whatever it needs to do, but I would like to
mention a more general point before we start talking architecture and

If we use a GTK / QT / CPD or whatever dialog with something like this:

[   Print settings
[   Color management:
[        [_ EpsonStylusColor600PlainPaperGenuineInks.icc {>} ]
[        Black point compensation [X]

Then, we've **TOTALLY FAILED** at user-centric design and abstracting
all the low level technical details. We'd be asking users to fix the
gaping cracks in our architecture and blaming them when they get it
