I think I've been conflating sRGB and device colors. What I'd be in favor of 
right now would be somebody changing NS to use device RGB colors by default, 
and seeing if the world falls apart. The indications are that it would improve 
matters for NS emacs users without upsetting anyone else.

Having a customization for the NS colorspace would be a nice-to-have, and the 
possibility of having colors displayed identically across all window-systems 
would be a laudable longer-term goal.
