>From what I understand both ConTeXt and pdfx packages fully support
inclusion of any given ICC profile. It's just that some profiles are
current stored under TEXMF/tex/context and some are stored under
TEXMF/tex/latex/pdfx, meaning that the same ICC files cannot be used
in the other engine.

Hans initially suggested TEXMF/color, but this was rejected. If adding
another top level directory is completely undesirable, the only
solution for sharing resources I see is using something like
    TEXMF/tex/generic/color/context/ (for files from context)
    TEXMF/tex/generic/color/pdfx/ (for files from pdfx)
and the files could then be used by either engine.
