I always thought this would be better as a 'chromaticities' field per colorspace. With one also being on the reference colorspace.

I loved this idea when Mark originally hinted at it at SIGGRAPH, but frankly, it would probably require some deeper sculpting unless someone can figure out an elegant solution for the parser on each transform.

Part of the problem here though is that I'm pretty sure this begins to deviate quite a bit from the transform oriented nature of OCIO. It's also compounded by the fact that it isn't terribly clean as some transforms (say OETF / EOTF or other transfer curves) would not have definitions. So again, it feels deeper perhaps? 

Question would be would this just be metadata or actually used to create extra ops.

I am approaching this from the aspect of designing UIs that are properly colour managed, and it's darn tricky currently. It's also darn tricky to design say, shaders or algorithms that require XYZ in a colour agnostic way without such metadata (such as black body or Kelvin formulas).

This almost trivial solution would certainly repair all of those cases instantly, at a low cost of code overhead / change.

What do you think?

I'm very curious to hear what other folks with much larger brains than mine have to say?
