I've just tried this with Krita and I can save cmyk images in jpeg and tiff 
and load them again. I'll contact Axel and try to find out which version of

Yes, we use the same converter as ImageMagick, and doesn't support all of xcf. 
We've currently no plans to write our own converter, instead we're trying to 
get an universion, open interchange format for raster graphics done.
