    Yeah, I still think they should focus on Arcan instead.
    Rather, they should work better to get the useful aim.

    KDE has Night Light feature since 5.12 https://kde.org/announcements/plasma-5.12.0.php

    "Wayland-only Night Color feature that lets you adjust the screen color temperature to reduce eye strain"
    Also available on KDE X11, FWIW.

    XMPP did something similar, but they defined profiles which were sets of extensions meant to provide some functionality.
    That's how wayland protocols work

    I cherish its every little baby step.

    it's not like there's an abundance of color calibration applications for X anyway.
    They say this is the only one, and that it is good and has good hardware calibration device support, but I never tried it nor had to use it for a client so I don't know.

    Apparently Wayland does not allow color calibration applications to work, yet. Or at least so says the commit message.

    I just calibrate on Windows and apply the resulting ICC profiles to Linux afterwards.

    I know how color calibration works I do calibrate my screens from time to time. I just wasn't sure where this fits. Thanks for the explanation.

    Wayland core is deliberately simple so additional protocols can cover things like color calibration. If a core protocol includes additional features, it is hard to replace them as needs evolve with time because of compatibility requirements. This is why X11 protocol couldn't just be extended forever.

    It's a protocol that should be used by color calibration applications to ask a Wayland compositor to display a special window. The user will place the physical color calibration device on this window. Then the application can alter the color of this window with RGB triplet numbers.
    This special window will be ignoring any existing color calibration settings due to obvious reasons.
