Assumed that the input is in a homogenous colour space, it would be
sufficient to have a nice Cmyk + Alpha coding.
More advanced would be to support
* higher bit depths 10 bit per sample and more (even 16-bit float could
improve here, it would improve to load 16-bit PNG's and OpenEXR)
Additional colour management support would help in keeping the output
flexible according to the backend capabilities. (still on my own TODO)
