Chris can probably fill in better, but I believe his argument was
that, at the time color-correction was first proposed (years ago)
several popular formats were *not* color-managed.  In particular,
Flash wasn't.  Today, Flash can be color-managed, as can JPEG and
other image formats.  Thus, if an author wants to ensure everything
matches, they just need to opt everything into color management, and
they're done.  No need to involve CSS.
