[Openicc] GoSoC 2011... Summary Pane

Hello all,
if we are printing under Mac OS X with applications based printer color 
management, we would need a summary pane, which would talk with both to 
application and the printer drivers and pulls the configurations 
settings from both.
Furthermore, the OS functions for the summary pane should provide an 
interface that developers of applications and printer drivers can 
validate, that the exchange of settings functions proper.

Does the Mac OSX summary pane delivers such functionalities for developers ?

Best regards

Setting aside any complaints about malformed print drivers doing the wrong thing, the UI will tell me that ColorSync is going to be used when it certainly should not be, and also tells me it will be used when it isn't. So I find the Color Matching summary to be intermittently misleading and thus useless.
