Thanks for the example. That **doesn't** read the color from the _screen_. It reads the _computed value_ from the DOM. CSS has the concepts of [specified](), [computed]() and [used]() values.

CSS Color 4 does not yet define the computed value for the `color()` function.
However, the computed value for earlier syntactic forms is defined, and I expect the value for the newer forms to be similar. For example, the computed value for the color `#17F` (#1177FF) is the string `rgb(17, 119, 255)`. So I would expect the computed value of `color(prophoto-rgb 0.4835 0.9167 0.2188)` to be the string `color(prophoto-rgb 0.4835 0.9167 0.2188)` and the computed value of `color(--mynamed "Deep Pink")` to be `color(--mynamed "Deep Pink")`, not the Lab values read from the Deep Pink entry in the color profile.
