Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-color] Generic Transform Function for RGB Color Spaces (#4488)

> These parameters could even become descriptors in @color-profile, but that would be worthy of a dedicated issue.

They could, but

1. The examples you give are all predefined colorspaces so don't need (and must not have) an @color-profile
2. The things that actually need an @color-profile in practice (calibrated CMYK or CMYKOGV print) are non-additive and the ICC profile is a large, inverted 4D or 7D lookup table of measured Lab values for a sampling of ink combinations, which does not lend itself to your approach.

In summary yes, we could replace ICC profiles for RGB spaces with your suggested alternate formulation as descriptors, but that would have no advantages and many disadvantages such as incompatibility with existing infrastructure, so we won't.
