Yes. We absolutely need a document that describes the workflows that are
handled by the current implementation. Then we need some test images

Well, choosing a working profile other than sRGB is totally unsupported
and will definitely lead to bad results. But you are correct, the PNG
plug-in is doing the wrong thing here and we should revert that change.
Probably even in also in the gimp-2-6 branch.
