1. ColorSync is an Apple trademark for implementation of the ICC standard, although they appear to be sharing it with Mozilla, so maybe that's not a problem.

2. The actual location of the files shouldn't matter, since the profiles will probably be handled internally.

3. The location is anything but standard. If ColorSync is ever implemented on other OSs, they'll probably put it in a different place entirely (probably following that dumb FHS standard :-) )
