        It actually doesn't mean much for general color management, since applying such a color transform in the hardware is only useful for special purposes, such as emulation or proofing. General color management allows composing multiple different color space sources onto the screen at once, and allows for the use of the full gamut of the display,. You need to use the CPU (or maybe GPU) to do the separate color transforms for each source before composition. Using the HW pipeline you can only have one source colorspace , and you are restricted to the gamut of that source rather than being able to use the full display gamut.

        You want legacy support so that you don't break current (properly general and working) color management, while waiting for some non-existent "new" color management support that won't actually do what the legacy SW is capable of doing anyway.
