The proposed change currently reads:
"
[ICC42]
    Image technology colour management — Architecture, profile format, and data structure. International Color Consortium. Specification ICC.1:2004-10 (Profile version 4.2.0.0) With errata incorporated, 5/22/2006. URL: http://color.org/ICC1v42_2006-05.pdf

"

There is an equivalent ISO spec it might be good to reference as well:
ISO 15076-1:2005 (Edition 1) is equivalent to International Color Consortium Specification ICC.1:2004-10 (Profile version 4.2.0.0) with errata incorporated, 5/22/2006. URL: http://www.color.org/ICC1v42_2006-05.pdf


And I am told there is work underway on a version 4.3, expected within a year. Do we want css3-color to incorporate 4.3 when it's released, or would we prefer to require the spec to rev to augment ICC profile support?  (That is, do we want some sort of 'as updated from time to time' verbiage ala the Unicode reference?  My understanding is that all minor number revisions are b/w compatible with the major number.  So 4.x would be compatible with 4.y, where y <= x.)

If we do want the forward compatibility, perhaps:
"
[ICC42]
    Image technology colour management — Architecture, profile format, and data structure. International Color Consortium. Specification ICC.1:2004-10 (Profile version 4.2.0.0) With errata incorporated, 5/22/2006. URL: http://color.org/ICC1v42_2006-05.pdf; or equivalently ISO 15076-1:2005 (Edition 1); or version 4 profiles subsequent to 4.2, as published by the ICC from time to time.
"

Best wishes,

Melinda
