If somehow possible it should run as dedicated user rather than root.
Maybe some gnome-conf user or whatever. However, the SQL injections have
to be fixed nevertheless.

A shortcoming in policykit should not force other daemons to run as root
IMHO. I guess colord has to use dbus sender id to check by themself,
even though I'd expect that something cool like policykit should be
able to grant permissions for actions based on user id's.
