Definitely!  But I don't know whether it's better to name the
directory "icc" or "icc-profiles" instead of "color".  Are there
any other color related things which are not ICC profiles?

Maybe someone uploads a package to CTAN which contains other profiles
provided by http://color.org sometime.  Then it would make sense to
put them into a directory named "color" (we don't have dots in
directory names and thus "color.org" is probably deprecated) and I
think that


sounds better than


and is more comprehensible.

Anyway, I like Mojca's idea to share ICC profiles among engines/formats.
