I disagree. It was reliable in the sense that running the
profile loader set it to a known state, irrespective
of whatever other applications may have done via
other API's. With the behavior changed to combine
all the API settings, there is no simple way to
set it to a known state.

Except it has the opposite effect in a color management sense !
