Right. The only thing that colord supports right now is the qualifier,
like ColorSync.

At what point do you write the meta tags into the ICC profile? What
kind of thing would the properties contain? I've got a feeling these
would be better saved as colord extended metadata (saved in a sqlite
database and added to the DBus interface) rather than into the profile

I think it makes more sense for Gutenprint to talk to colord, rather
than the other way around.
