I'm more that happy. Your work is great. IMO you also showed some of the commercial vendors which side one's bread is buttered on.
As for a standard gamut mapping algorithm, I hardly see that as desirable. Gamut mapping is very definitely still a research topic, and will almost certainly be one for many year to come. It's just not desirable to anoint one in a standard. This situation is hardly surprising, since gamut mapping is at least 50% art and taste, not science. Do you really want color management to be frozen at the state of the art 2005, rather than further improving ?
No, not at all! But then again, the graphic industry badly *needs* a standardized gamut mapping to sore and carry media independent data.
It would be far wiser I think, to settle on standards that don't depend on standardizing a gamut mapping algorithm for their interoperabillity.
... or to agree upon a provisional one. Have a nice day (or maybe night in Australia?) Klaus
