ok - step by step.

First, I define a new filetype e.g. "ICC-profile" with .icc extension.

Than I define a converter from icc to ??? (I used png, and included the file as 
graph which I commented out manualy - ugly). 

As a copier, I tried ext_copy -e icc $p $r (don't remember the exact variables 
anymore, not well documented), but lyx allways wants to rename the copied files 
<number>-filename style, so this didn't work. 

There should be some better way!
