The WG resolution conflicts somewhat with [inline issue 9](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-color/#predefined):

>  Decided at San Francisco to add a larger set of common predefined spaces like AdobeRGB, ProPhoto RGB, and so on. Also coated and uncoated swop, etc, etc.

A palette of named (LCH) spot colors may not constitute a color space of its own, but the first parameter to `color()` is not restricted to color space names anyway, even if &ndash; as @grorg believes &ndash; that was the main reason for this notation.

The specification should probably include an informative example of *how* this was possible, i.e. the first example in [11. Profiled, Device-dependent Colors](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-color/#icc-colors) should **include a named color** from an ICC profile. 

Also, since browsers do not support external ICC profiles &ndash; but maybe PDF generators do or will &ndash; you cannot &ldquo;already do this&rdquo;, which is the very reason for `rec2020` and `image-p3` being predefined.
