Lightroom/Camera Raw: Profile Canon cameras that do not shoot raw.

The Idea here is for Adobe to consider supporting the market of Canon jpeg-only cameras that support CHDK, by providing Camera Calibration Profiles for those cameras - at a minimum: "Adobe Standard".

Background:
----------------
CHDK turns a jpeg-only Canon into a raw-DNG shooting machine. The only missing piece is the camera-calibration profiles. Hmmm......

Bonus Idea: Support sales of pre-configured big cards with CHDK already on it, for applicable models...

Dunno if there are hacks for other brands...

Note: Lightroom can be used without the camera calibration profiles, but may require additional color tweaking by user.

Maybe keep the profiles in the Adobe Lab so as not to "officially" support...

My experience: Lightroom is arguably even *more* beneficial to a P&S than a DSLR since the super-deluxe noise reduction and raw processing engine pay even bigger dividends...
