thanks John for the long and well elaborated mail. It helped me understanding 
the porblem better.

Having a D-Bus interface and a runtime dependency is the better solution IMHO. 
Although KWin has color correction in 4.10 I have never been able to even test 
it due to the dependency chain and my distribution not providing Oyranos but 
colord is already installed (note KWin has only a runtime dependency to a 
module I'm unable to build). That's quite a pity and if such an abstraction 
helps to get color correction to more users it's the way to go.
