Ok, it might seem silly, especially with the introduction of LUT files and so, but that could be applied to many of the adjustment layers.

Prepare an image,
Ad an adjustment layer, (like a curve)
Save it "as a preset" (it makes a .acv file wherever you want).

Open an other image,
Drag n drop the acv file directly on photoshop.

Instead of saying "photoshop can't do anything with this file" it should recognize this as a curves setting and make a curve layer on top of my image, just like it does with importing other images as smart objects.

Would sort of work like .xmp files, you just transfer a 60k file the process is done when you need it.
