AFAIK, cinepaint doesn't offer CMYK support, and it's certainly no high
priority for the developers, since it's mainly used for films, not pre-press.

Feature-wise (eg. image editing and retouching), it's way behind, like GIMP
1.1 or so, but in terms of supported colour spaces, cms etc. GIMP isn't even
close to CinePaint.

You should have a look at Krita. It supports all sorts of colour spaces and
colour depths, including 16 bit CMYK.
