That is not as simple as that. You must include the driver, the colour 
related driver settings and maybe more identification informations from 
the device itself like the EDID. E.g. Modern monitors can emulate colour 
spaces, that would be written in the EDID. A simple one device to one 
profile is over simplified and ambiguous at best.

... and do caching, lookup, perhaps wrapping of CMMs and so one. Would it 
not be nice to share that?
