You cannot assign an icc profile without transforming image. Still todo. very 
simple to implement but time missing (:=)))

Else, Color management plugin can do it, but it will transform color of 

Of course digiKam embed icc profile data in JPEG, TIFF or PNG. There is a 
section for that ouside image data. icc profile is a metadata !

It will ask you to convert it to your default workspace profile set in CM 
setup. There is an option for that...

no, it just use your selection in setup.

yes, digiKam do it via a color correction dialog.
