I can attest to the fact that it took my only a week of part-time poking to hook LittleCMS into Inkscape, with most of that being the work to track down the proper spots of Inkscape's rendering pipeline to hook in to. Hooks to allow for different CMM should be fairly simple to implement also.

This is very interesting as you have actually done this in a program 
that does (or wants) to use Cairo.

In your opinion, exactly what support in Cairo do you need or want?

It would seem that you did cms just fine without the need for Cairo to 
support it, which matches what I think. However I suspect also you are 
not trying to send exact colors to pdf, which is apparently the main 
push behind trying to get cms into Cairo.
