Regarding colourmanagement, Peter Linnel pointed allready out only RGB
seems supported by SVG, as well as I read. Most DTP applications would be
outruled without CMYK++ support.
DeviceColors and named colours are just mentioned to come in SVG 1.2.
But these are allowed only for vector elements.
For pixel images one is limited to jpg/png which is not sufficient for
printing. Tiff would be on candidate to include as it is allreay a widely
accepted print format.
+ development for color management
+ imaging / panoramas
