Definitely we need an explicit path for building profiles -- a control that
says 'I am building a profile, printing/displaying a test chart' or
something like that very obvious. This is a function that has to be part of
a color managed system. Depending on the device, whether it is a printer or
a scanner or a display that is being profiled at the time, the processing
path for that 'test chart' process should be configured differently. For
example, when building a scanner profile -- you probably still want a good
display profile to be used for viewing assessment of the scan result, you
just don't want an existing scan profile to be used.
When not building profiles, are there scenarios when users want to see
uncorrected uncontrolled device behavior? I cannot think of such scenarios.
Please provide examples of such situations.
