Guys, please don't quote a 55k diff when adding a two-line reply :)

Spot color is problematic, since 

a) mixing with color-managed colors is problematic (but ok, use sRGB fallback)
b) tints can't be expressed without a paint mixing model,  but will be asked for 

and most importantly

c) spot colors were not in SVG color so this would be a new proposal with new text.

Happy to discuss it, but its not suitable to be 'squeezed in' ad-hoc.
