Sequencer Scene preivew Color Management is broken

Final display space is kind of broken for the scene preview strip.

Draw manager is outputing linear color into a byte buffer (could be float buffer if we want).
This byte buffer has the color management of the sequencer scene applied to it.

So maybe it would be a good idea to just output the byte buffer to the right display space? or keep a linear buffer and color manage in sequencer?
I don't know which color space should be use in this case, the scene that contains the sequencer or the scene of the strip?

This is tricky to debug because of this bug T54437

Clément Foucault (fclem) triaged this task as Confirmed, Medium priority.

Byte buffer is supposed to be in display space, which is sRGB for current OpenGL in master. If you want to output linear space, do so to the float buffer. If you want to keep using byte buffer, apply OCIO GLSL on it.

This is nothing i can fix here, you're violating the existing design.

@Jeroen Bakker (jbakker), can you check if is fixed or needs additional work? This is quite an old report.
