Sorry again, but does that actually mean that if I have a WG screen and an  
application which does not support the opt-out protocol or bought into a  
competing* system, it will be reduced to sRGB while the application and  
the screen actually could do WG ... but the delete icon in dolphin looks  

Next question: do you have approached the Wayland project on this?
In case, what do they say?


*semi OT sidenote:
This is btw. sth. I do not like at all.
Xorg and fdo do not have the market share -esp. in that market- to afford  
two competing color management systems.
I have no idea about the technical, conceptual and maybe religious  
differences, but would suggest to iron that out by all means if you ever  
want usable CM on this Architecture.
