I agree; GIMP windows should support color management for individual
image windows according to these atoms, absolutely;
What it would be of little use to do, is to support showing the SAME
image in a single window spanning multiple monitors, with different
colormanagement for each monitor-segment of that Single window.
As I understand, that is what Christopher was requesting and yahvuu
was accurately describing as an uncommon use case, rather than the
general case of one image window on this monitor, one on that, and
they are color managed differently because of it.
