Oh. Well presumably you'll only be needing one such tag for the  
vector and text elements which TeX will create --- just post-process  
the file to assign such a colourspace tag --- this could be set up  
using OS X's pdf Services. I'd be curious to learn of a situtation  
where you needed more than one and this wouldn't be an option though.

Naturally any placed .pdf element should have the correct tags  
assigned already (pdftex will not disturb these when placing them).

Yes. You could use any colourspace desired, but I don't think this'd  
be a needful thing to do, since there's a far more straightforward  
way to address it --- see above.
