But having users navigate to the profiles is poor U/I - they should
just be able to nominate the printer, just the same was as they shouldn't
have to specify the display profile all the time (it's implicit
in the choice of system connected device).

Same argument as above. The names and location of the system connected
printers profiles is a detail that the user shouldn't have to know in
the normal course of events.
