I am by no means a photography professional and my point of view comes
mostly from what other people have said regarding CMYK support; I don't
have any direct sources to give.

photo editing apps are pushing for an RGB only work-flow? If you are
going to print an image, CMYK _will_ play a role in your work-flow.
