        this is impossible using per channel cLUTs, since you need to
move the chromaticities of the primaries, and that involves mapping
a pure color to a combination of colors. This is why some wide gamut
displays have an sRGB emulation mode.

Your alternative is to do the mapping in your application. Note that
while you can apply a source to destination transformation using
CPU based CMM's (ie. Argyll's imdi, or lcms), you could also
use OpenGL to apply a matrix profile or even a full 3D device
link, using texture lookups.
