I did not know, also because help finds nothing for "import color".

Also having to manipulate some files in the profile directory is not what I'd
call "importing a palette". Why not add some UI (and help text) for that?

Agreed, I don't know that details of internal color handling in LibreOffice.Is
it sRGB or completely uncalibrated?

See above on UI and help text. In addition help knows nothing about ".ase" or
"ase". So how should the user know?
