Hmm, I think that would basically make the event obsolete and without
solving that problem I suspect the event is not very useful, because
one could already receive and display (incorrectly) some buffers
before realizing that they have different colorimetry.

I believe for now we would have to handle this like a resolution
change - flush the CAPTURE queue and the next buffer after the flush
would have the new colorimetry. With the new API we could optimize the
decoding by getting rid of the flushes and relying on the in-bound
information.

Best regards,
Tomasz
