One point to clarify: I believe the built-in Adobe profile in Krita is  
called simply "Adobe RGB", which may or may not be identified with the  
embedded "Adobe RGB (1998)" profile. It seems everybody has their own  
version of these standard profiles with a slightly different name.   
FYI, if I hand-edit the .xml file and change the profile to "Adobe  
RGB" I can load it in Krita, but if I re-save it as then it's changed  
back to "Adobe RGB (1998)".  I guess Krita's doing a good job of  
preserving the profile somewhere.

There is the file "built image/annotations/icc".  Does that seem right  
to you, or should it have the name of the profile in it?  I'm assuming  
that's the embedded profile.
