That was my surprise and hope some time ago too. I looked in the man pages
and found only some rudimentary entries describing how to convert single
colour for the colour selction. I am not aware of any mechanism on how to
send Lab or Yuv or something else directly to X for displaying. And I did
not found any mechanism on telling X which is the correct monitor profile.
This I would call colour management.
