There are probably a few dozens of people in the world who really do
understand CM. It's one of those things where the more you know, the more
you don't know.

That's the reality.

Your target users - professional artists and photographers - switch off
color management, because it’s confusing them?

People who are professionals still do crazy things like tagging a photo
with an ICC profile of a display. And yes, I know quite a handful of those
who found CM to be too complicated, switched CM off and "calibrated" their
output to work well with just one print shop.

> So, may it be, that this - „all graphics artist you know … switch off
color management - is the real cause why GIMP doesn’t have a working color
management in 2016? You don’t know anybody who uses it and so you don’t see
any need to implement it?

Please calm down.

You are pretty much saying that it is wrong to force freedom of choice upon
people. This doesn't make any sense.
