I'm curious, are you going to handle color management issues in your epub
export, and if so, how?  This is especially an issue if a user is working
with CMYK colors or images.  Assuming they assign a profile (output
intent), the colors will get converted to the printable gamut (to L*a*b*
and then to RGB), which is less than the gamut of RGB.  Some profiles will
have a bigger gamut, but still not quite as big as you can get with RGB.

This is not just an issue for Scribus.  I'm curious if/how any of the
e-reader exporters handle this problem.
