In addition, the image is somewhat dangerous because it's not CIE Lab at all.

When viewing this image with the proprietary AWare Systems TIFF codec, it seems totally bazurk. Colors are completely out of whak. Remembering how this image was constructed, I tried changing the Photometric. Sure enough, the image makes perfect sense when colors are interpreted as ITU Lab instead of CIE Lab.

This image is not CIE Lab at all, even if the Photometric incorrectly says so. It can be used as a testimage, but getting correct colors would indicate incorrect handling, and the other way around, so beware.

I've merged this final note with the original analysis, and added it to the the bugzilla entry so as to avoid people using this image as a testimage without being aware of the quircks in the future.
