   However, to comment specifically on your example - it would be
   impossible to accurately preview the results of changing a color
   channel curve without having a colorimetric (e.g. ICC) profile for
   the output device, at which point such curves are probably not
   needed anyways...

As an example of how I think something like this could be useful:
consider a photographer using a hextone inkset, which is usually
black, warm and cool versions of midtone grays, and a light gray.  She
would profile her combination of paper, ink, printer, and resolution,
and then use a slider to control the degree of warmth of the output.

However, with this example there is no way to generate an accurate
preview image without knowing the relationship (i.e. profile) between
the inks, media, and screen.
