(PR-650, CS-2000 and the like) to be used for the calibration of the
display. Currently it's not that easy to test if such a device will
yield "better" (whatever that means and must be defined before hand)
calibration results then a desktop device.

Roger has certainly suggested this too.

A "dummy" demo device just generating some more or less meaningful
typical numbers is useful to test the application itself.

It already has this. If you use -dfake, it will either use
an internal fake device response, or read the device response
from the file "fake.icm"/"fake.icc" if present.
[ It's not documented because it's for release testing. ]

I'm not sure if you suggest to enter each color one after the other?
If no interative calibration process is used then a list of
measurement data will be sufficient.

If you already have a list of measurement data, then you
can massage it into .ti3 format and bypass dispread completely :-)
