Just some notes for anyone thinking about implementing some of this:

Black point compensation is not a part of the ICC specification and is
not currently available in any icc library that I know of.

Use paper white:  requires ink black to be on also.  Use an absolute
colorimetric transform.

Use ink black: I belive this option would be pretty simular to using an
absolute colorimetric transform for the shadow, and a relative
colorimetric transform for the highlight.  I know this is possible with
the argyll cms library, but I'm not sure about any others. (see the -w
option to icclink)

Neither ink black or paper white is on:  Use a relative colorimetric

IMHO: Rather than trying to duplicate adobe's black point compensation,
I think our time would be better spent exploiting argyll's device link
profiles and image specific gamut mapping capabilities.
