CMYK is not a perceptual color spec. CMYK specifies halftone screen values
to be used in offset printing. How it is eventually perceived depends on ink
manufacture, printing press adjustments, paper stock, lighting and other
variables. I don't understand why the CSS spec should be concerned with
CMYK.
