There was some discussion on this list about color management, e.g.:

Well, it looks like it's not important enough for the developers as
nothing has been implemented yet :-)

I personally don't know much about color management and this kind of
calibration. Do we need support for that in the backends and or the
API at all? I thought it's necessary to create the .icm files with
each individual scanner. So e.g. if you have two scanners (exactly
same model) they may vary, because e.g. gain/offset is different
because of slightly different sensitivity of the CCD/CIS.

I'll add an entry in the TODO list but more input would be appreciated.
