Chris,

Thanks for your comment. The TT WG has reviewed this comment has agreed
upon the following response:

Other than the use of sRGB, DFXP intentionally does not specify
conformance requirements on fidelity of color conversion from a source
document to a DFXP document. At this point, we have not identified any
requirements that would suggest adding this level of specificity.

Regards,
Glenn

Hello public-tt,

 I'm pleased to note that all colors are specified in the sRGB color
space.

Does TT AF DFXP express any conformance requirement regarding the
fidelity of the colors when converting to and from DFXP? I am thinking
not only of chrominance and white-point adaptation effects - which
should be minimal for modern equipment given that sRGB uses the 709
phosphor chromaticities - but more for differing assumptions on headroom
footroom, allowed colors, and corrections for flare, scene brightness,
surround and other viewing condition effects.

There is a useful discussion at
http://www.srgb.com/srgb709compatibility.html
How are sRGB and ITU-R BT.709-2 compatible?

Basically I am wondering how much guidance should be given in this area
such that reliable interchange between differing systems can be
achieved.
