They might (although they could also do that with the existing
device-cmyk() functionality. It is still an input color though, and
can be converted to other colors 9like for on-screen preview of a
print-targetted styling).

Unlike device-cmyk it is not hardcoded. It can be changed. It just
happens to be a null transform, for a particular output device.
