    IFXers,

    Per our discussion on the topic of ICC profiles and Lab color spaces at the
    Maui meeting...

    After doing some research on ICC profiles, I propose we make the changes to
    the PDF/is specification that are shown in the PDF at:
    <ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/QUALDOCS/other/ICCBasedColorSpace.pdf>.

    The limitations that are placed on the profiles will yield very small ICC
    profiles that are fully functional and that do not compromise quality. By
    using ICC profiles instead of a device independent color space, we alleviate
    the burden from the Producer of the Document. Also, by allowing for
    Consuming devices to not support ICC based profiles (if they a color
    limited, see link), and the fact that the input profiles are relatively
    simple to implement; the Consuming device's should not (in my opinion) be
    overly burdened.

    Comments?
    -Rick
