I am more in favor of feasible and more concrete projects for GIMP,

GSoC. Something which will definitely end up in GIMP in the end.:-)

Some suggestions focused on painting and color management:

* Better LCH support including high bit depth LCH palettes (to replace current 8-bit sRGB palettes) and gradients, plus for the color pickers outlines showing LCH vs the user-selected RGB color space at any given Lightness value, and showing complements/color harmonies.

* Improved soft proofing to compensate for deficiencies in LCMS soft proofing.

* Improved painting assets in general, including brushes and brush dynamics, building on Americo's work on improving painting assets, and addressing a bunch of painting-related bug reports.

* High bit depth brushes - Cinepaint supported 16-bit brushes, but it would probably be more efficient for GIMP to go straight to 32f brushes.

* An HDR viewer and improved HDR editing capabilities.

* OCIO color management

* Improved support for AnyRGB and AnyTRC.

* Adding JCH and CIECAM02 support, following the lead set by RawTherapee's extensive and incredibly useful (for artistic purposes as well as compensating for viewing conditions) CIECAM02 support.
