The device values are optional. They make sense if the device is very consistent, and the conventional conversion from PCS to device values through an output device profile is not ideal - which is not uncommon. The device values allow someone to fine tune the resulting simulation of the named color. It's a tedious sort of enterprise but it has some merit for those who want to go that route.
