None of the ICC profile handling in GIMP deals with GEGL or higher
bitdepths - at the start and end of all these code paths things go
through 8bpc; and probably behave similarly to how they do in 2.8 -
there shouldn't be much of a difference.

I've seen some of these discolorations; but at least the results are a
lot more correct than earlier versions, for some of these tests the
type of resampler and "where in the pixel" the center being resampled
is will matter a lot, the 2x2 px in input -> 1 px in output hardcoded
tests used by eric brasseur are not generic like the code paths
employed by gimp.

TIFFs seem to be a nightmare and only brief initial attempts have been
made at making GIMP support higher bitdepth diffs.
