[Openicc] GoSoC 2011: CPD and Color Management

Although the ink settings precede the profile, and may be the same in more
than one profile, it is still important for correct profile usage to record
in each profile the ink settings that are correct for that profile.
The ink settings are part of the underpinning of a profile determining its
correct use.
