The colorspace talk was more directed at you as you are the one fiddeling
with lcms , and perhabs you know how to implement such a function.

As an update to my previous mail luv is the prefered model for color
distances as it is a perceptual model based on the full gamut model XYZ.

in luv the colordistance = sqrt(l*l + u*u + v*v)

Percpetually uniform means that two colors that are equally distant in the
colorspace are equally distant perceptually

So - in short - can lcms provide XYZ values or even better luv values

if we have XYZ then we can compute luv ourselves
