Parsed input and string output formats support all valid CSS forms:

color(srgb-linear r g b / a)  // Color function

When manually creating a color via raw data or specifying a color space as a parameter in a function, the color space name is always used:

Color("srgb-linear", [0, 0, 0], 1)

The string representation of the color object and the default string output will be in the color(srgb-linear r g b / a) form.

>>> Color("srgb", [1, 0, 0])
color(srgb 1 0 0 / 1)
>>> Color("srgb", [1, 0.37626, 0]).to_string()
'rgb(255 95.946 0)'
