For chrome to do  color management efficiently, everything needs to be done
on the GPU.
Tables are generally much less efficient than doing using math on the GPU,
and my impression
is that ICC v4 relies much more heavily on tables than ICC v2. It's been a
while since I read the
ICC spec, so I don't remember which parts are mandatory.
