Because without the *relaxing* of the conformance criteria provided
by the default value of 'color-correction', we have no conformant
implementations (because correction to sRGB isn't tested in the test
suite).

(And without the option of the correct behavior provided by the
other value, authors have no way to get reliable colors in CSS...
which they are theoretically guaranteed by CSS1 and CSS2.1, although
not in practice.)
