I agree. But I considered adding a reserved parameter to the functions, 
so we have the option to later add color management support without 
breaking binary compatibility of 3rd party plug-ins.

Well, yes for now. But the conversion routines go into the colorspace 
lib and may be used by plug-ins for who knows what. (like the 
Decompose/Compose plug-in.) Then it might become relevant.

(Then again, nobody complained so far and probably nobody would ever 
notice if we did it Right(tm)...)
