+<a name=optcolor><b>Optional ColorSpace support:</b></a>
+Handling of PhotoYCC (YCC), PhotoYCCA (YCCA), RGBA and YCbCrA color spaces
+by the standard plugin, as described below, is dependent on capabilities
+of the libraries used to interpret the JPEG data. Thus all consequential
+behaviors are optional. If the support is not available when decoding,
+the color space will be treated as unrecognized and the appropriate
+default color space for the specified number of component channels
+may be used.
+When writing, an Exception may be thrown if no suitable conversion
+can be applied before encoding.
+But where the support for these color spaces is available, the behavior
+must be as documented.
