have no relationship between each other, and that license is CC
I just got the e-mail after sending my previous reply.

Regarding the missing sRGB/CMYK relationship, I can't see there's a
"system" here. And that backs my theory about the swatches being
created by cherry-picking device-dependent colors.
I can't see why this "system" should be better than any other palette.

Regarding the license, it's the most restrictive CC and it's certainly
not free-software compatible. I'm not an expert here and I don't know
how palettes relate to the host application, but I guess there is a
problem with that too. At least to distribute it as part of GIMP or
any other free software package.

CC-BY-ND-NC would also be incompatible with free Software, since it should be able to be refined (changed) and even used for commercial purposes.

I must also question the sense behind this "systems". The colors that i used in successful projects aren't even present inside this pallets. I really have to question their use cases. Some pallets make sense to me, others aren't usable at all. This one? I can't really imagine to use it for any purpose, since the natural colors i repeatedly use aren't present.
