Jeremias,
Fop-dev,

I know I have no vote in this, but I do disagree.

1) I still believe that PDF is a print medium and should therefore
default to CMYK colorspace. If supported correctly by software, the
colors should show up right on the screen.

2) If you want to embedd the sRGB profile, I would recommend using the
profiles found at the International Color Consortium:
http://www.color.org

especially

http://www.color.org/srgbprofiles.html

unfortunately I was unable to find the exact licensing terms.

just my 2 cts.

Max
