Well, I already brought this up in reference to gradients, but it also
applies to anything else that involves more than one color: A way to
specify in which space colors are blended is needed.

Besides gradients mask:, filter:, semi-transparent layers or images also
come to mind.

The current rules referring to SVG's simple alpha compositing will lead
to undesirable results in wide-gamut/HDR content.

So SVG's color-interpolation property also needs to be extended to
additional spaces or possibly user-specified profiles.
And support for it should be encouraged for UAs that support non-sRGB
spaces.
