You seem to be under the impression that all processing whatever the
operation is done going to happen in one color space/pixel format a
"working space". In a GEGL processing world; it is the individual
operations that have working spaces; there is no global working space
that things happen in. (NB: having gamma toggles in blending modes of
GIMP is according to this model making things confusing, compositing
in different color spaces should be _different_operations_).

I think you might be using the phrases "color space" and "working
space" in a way that, although technically correct, perhaps might be
confusing to a lot of people.

My understanding of what you mean by "color space/working space" is
as follows:

In the strongly color-managed world of BABL and GEGL, the only *RGB*
color space/working is *s*RGB, either the linear gamma/light sRGB or
the more perceptually uniform regular sRGB with its not quite
gamma=2.2 TRC.

There is no linear gamma *or* perceptually uniform choice at import. There is a
conversion to one of the babl-managed pixel formats; and after that GEGL
operations are free to convert between any of the unbounded babl formats.

GIMP is making things more confusing by letting an arbitrary extra parameter
change the behavior of compositing ops; this "feature" is something I consider
a bug, it shouls also be considered bugs to do operation in linear space if the
algortihm of a GEGL op behaves incorrectly/really unexpectedly unless it works
in a more perceptual space.

I've asked this question of what is actually meant by "color
space/working space" in the world of BABL and GEGL twice before now,
and no one has answered. But it's a pretty important point, so I'm
asking again.

Thanking you in advance for confirmation/clarification of what
"color space/working space" means when discussing *BABL/GEGL* color
spaces/working space,

Not sure if this is a clarification; I do not know what you mean by the terms
either and can only tell you what the intended architecture of GEGL is; for
better communication than what is possible by email please try IRC.
