But one could want to make operations using specific profiles. I mean,
addition is clearly not the same in CMYK or in sRGB, and marginally
different in other color spaces. I do not develop for the Gimp, I am
even partially color blind (which is why I read stuff about color spaces),
but I think operations should be done in the image color space. Which
means we have to keep track of an "image color space".
