It's indeed more related to displaying the data, that's why I called it 
RenderInfo. And in a way, profile and rendering intent fall in the same

Not really, but I might imagine someone wanting to select different transfer 
functions for large colorspaces. Though I don't know if that would be really 
needed or useful...

all of this, and these solutions don't seem to be the right ones :-(
