This is a tricky one and probably not solvable with EDLs - Possibly the
wider AAF format may help - somewhere (far?) into the future.

As far as applying colour corrections later to the uncorrected source using
a desktop package such as Shake - we've been investigating taking metadata
out of Nucoda's Film Master and making a Shake node from it so that this can
be applied as part of the overall film VFX Shake render later.

It's a bit of a software project but one that is more likely to involve
software based Digital Lab grading solutions rather than hardware based
ones - as Michael Most pointed out.

Theoretically however I suppose you could get the required information out
of one system and into another provided both  systems are 'open' AND
manufacturers are both open and supportive.

DISCLAIMER: I don't work for Nucoda but have a few of their systems here.
