My understanding (please correct me, I don't have personal experience
of this) is that the windows CMS is (or was?) rather broken: that was

The apple one is supposed to be better, but there are some benefits to
having the same CMS on all platforms.

You can embed ICC profiles in JPEG files. The lcms distribution
contains code to insert and extract profiles: check the sources for
jpegicc and friends.
