Switch Colorspace to Rec2020 or ACES?

Sorry if this has been answered already, but searching for "ACES" returns all posts containing the string, as in "places", "faces", etc.

Is there a way to switch Iray to output Rec2020 or even better ACES?

The "beauty canvas" seems to have the necessary bit-depth already and Affinity Photo reports the resulting exr as having a "linear colorspace", but the result is something blown out which needs heavy exposure correction.

If necessary, I'm willing to experiment with Iray's settings using an editor, if that would solve this issue.

Context: Switching between different colorspaces for output is described in the February 2019 edition of the API (iray_spectral_conversion_color_space), so it shouldn't be too much of a hassle to allow access to this setting.

Maybe a warning like "this output will look rather washed out when using a colorspace other than Rec709" should be shown for users not familiar with ACES workflows?

What do you think?
