You misunderstood me. What I was saying is that GIMP 2.0 has the API
to implement all this and I would have loved to see this added about a
year ago when it was proposed quite detailed already. Since that
didn't happen we can now also do some useful changes to the modules
API and to the core to integrate it even better. GimpDisplayConfig is
however definitely the wrong object to add this stuff to. I will try
to write down my ideas on how to share color management configuration
somewhen this weekend.

I don't think so. It will only cause more work. Instead we should
discuss here what changes we actually need. The actual implementation
is the minor part.

The proof filter should do proofs and nothing but proofs. What you are
suggesting sounds more like a new filter.
