Have someone seen a ICC profile, a EXIF object, a BROUZOUF object, make something else than adding ambiguity? ( Don't say waste CPU cycles and RAID cylinders, I know ) :-)))
ICC profiles, many times. Of course if you embed the wrong profile, then it is going to mess out your image, but used properly works quite well.
I can understand "wrong" profile regarding things like colorspace description ( primaries, white point ....), less easily for "intents"...
And when a soft give me the choice between 3 CMS giving diffÈrents results for the same "rendering options" ( choosen from a dozen) I hardly deal with the concept of a "proper use".
If you've got a buggy CMS - that's a problem.
But it's a solvable problem, and not the fault of the ICC or the profiles.
