I already see my (homemade) screen profiles in the list (having entered the 
directory where they are stored in the corresponding configuration). So if 
one, why not the other?

That said, I'm not at all convinced that applying an output profile to an 
image ment for storage/archiving/distribution is a good idea in any case. 
(well, I can imagine one case: you have to send the image to a device through 
software that cannot apply a needed output profile).
