There is a drawback of such approach. The color spaces implemented 
directly couldn't be effectively used  in ColorConvertOp operation with 
buffered images. Because it's impossible to link such transforms with 
icc ones (our default  sRGB color space among them). So,  the color 
transformation would end up with per-pixel color transformation of the 
whole image. Which is unacceptable slow. 

Also, there could be some problems with backward compatibility 
concerning ColorConvertOp. Because  of  ColorConvertOp(ICC_Profile[] 
profiles, RenderingHints hints) constructor. Someone could use it 
following way:

ColorConvertOp(new ICC_Profile[]
