Who said the color would be converted to the image's color-space? We
are discussing short-term solutions for color management here. GIMP
won't know anything about color-spaces. All we are discussing here is
whether it makes sense to use display filters to color-correct the
image display (and optionally color selector displays). The other
point that we are discussing is how file plug-ins should handle
embedded color profiles, i.e. whether to attach the profile to the
image or not.
