Non-CMYK Images Do Not Display Embedded Color Profiles

There are two possible solutions to this color display discrepancy:

QuarkXPress 7 is not honoring ICC profiles for RGB images when displaying them on screen, such as the default Proof Output settings (View > Proof Output > Composite RGB) or any RGB Output Setup.
