I know basically nothing about color management systems.
Don't some applications needs some kind of interface to use the color 
management system ?
Or is it only for setting up X, the printer, Wayland, etc.

In the first case, if applications (e.g. krita) need some way to work with the 
color management system, wouldn't it be good if KDE provided one interface on 
all platforms ?
