If you're working with CMYK (say) you may want the saturation tool
to tell you if you have over-inked, as PhotoShop can.  Or to
preview with or without undercolour removal.  Or to select which
channels are shown.  I'd say that the implication of adding
support for more colour models is that people will want to do
more, and that the UI will need to enable that (or the programmers
will need to decide not to let people do those things, of course :-) )

It turns out that post-2.4 GIMP is closer than I'd feared, and I am
sorry if I sounded negative, I didn't mean to.
