Some other solutions might not work that way, so clarifying this
point they way we just did is probably a Good Thing.
I was also thinking about CMYKOG, and I may have been a little
glib in my dismissal of it. CMYKOG is essentially a special type
of 6-color, which is not patent-encumbered, to the best of my
knowledge. There's certainly no reason why the user can't have
Hexachrome(R) if they install proper add-ons, but it couldn't
ship with GIMP as long as it has a libre license.
After all, there's a way to get PMS to work with Scribus (and I
believe you can use this to get approximations in GIMP as well):
