If Apple laid out a clear strategy to re-embrace "classic" ICC universal UI guidelines including and off switch, A big negative could become a huge positive!

I've said it numerous times already. There must be structures in place to reliably opt-out of system color management. One of those structures is a documented, public, API both for display and print. And at least for print, a reference app, would be another such structure.

The call for an "off switch" in the print dialog doesn't adequately address the problem. I think it's seen as a giant net, but disregards the giant holes. It's a knee jerk reaction to the experience we've been having on Mac OS, but it really isn't a solution. It's facade.
