@faceless2 You raise a good point: While a perceptual rendering intent is prohibitively expensive for the Web, it may be a viable option for other host environments, and whatever we specify should certainly *allow* for such superior rendering intents, but it cannot mandate them.

You're also correct that it cannot be specified per color space, because CSS is more granular than that. However, even per-element is insufficient granularity I'm afraid. As you point out, each use case calls for a different rendering intent. Also, in the general case, even on a single gradient, you can have colors that come from multiple sources, e.g. variables from a different stylesheet. It would be rather weird and surprising to have the same color variable displayed a different way based on where it's used.
