I vote for it.

I addition to the editor, it might make sense to have this function
also part of the "export" plugins - some may have ProPhoto/AdobeRGB
as default workspace and sending images out to other users/web/whatever
in these wide gamut spaces is usually not a good idea. Though, it might
be more then a single line of code then :-)
