I tried your hypothesis since GDAL does CMYK -> RGB conversion, by considering 
CMY as RGB without conversion, but the result is complete garbage, whereas the 
current CMYK -> RGB conversion produce just "weird" colors... One hypothesis I 
didn't test is to take the reverse value of K since this is often a source of
