If someone cares about ACES they can provide their own configuration,
removing the outdated one seems fine to me.

If this is just adding the P3 color space for reading images and
display that seems reasonable. If it's more then please explain what
that is.

I think it's inevitable if you want to display wide gamut images while
still displaying the rest of the UI correctly. It's a huge task and
needs a good design though, since it's easy to make a mess if it's not
done properly, it affects a lot of code.

I think everyone agrees that this needs to be improved.

Are you volunteering to actually implement 3) and 4), or just update
the configuration for 1) and 2)?
