I haven't looked at the patches, so I can't be certain.

However, I can say that the RI can be changed from the default in one of
three ways.  
1 - the 'ri' operator in the content stream
2 - the 'RI' key in an ExtGState dictionary (which is set with the 'gs'
3 - the 'Intent' key on a specific image XObject.

Make sure you've looked at all three.

NO!   However, when acting as a PDF/X compliant viewer, you WOULD use that
profile as the source and/or destination profile for rendering instead of
some other "working space".
