Then maybe we should just declare that what emacs uses internally "is"

I don't think the code would need to change, just a note in
comments/docs would do it.

If we want to do useful things with color, it would really help to
assign some more meaning to the quantities being manipulated.

It won't change what's displayed of course, and what's displayed on
systems that don't use sRGB will still be "wrong," but it at least gives
a more precise point[*] at which to address such issues, and a clue how
to do it...
