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

... or to agree upon a provisional one.

Have a nice day (or maybe night in Australia?)
