Photos are usually taken in the RGB color space, but usually printed in
the CMYK color space. Support for editing in both these color spaces is
to me clearly within the scope of a high-end photo manipulation application.

Yes, processing shall as long as possible be done in RGB, but at some
point you need to convert to the CMYK color space and a high-end photo
app should support editing also in this color space.
