Hello Edmund,
If You do softproofing during retouch, you probably have an application 
with advanced colormanagement capabilities. Most of this applications 
allow also application based colormanagement for the printing path.

Here, the idea of embedding the driver settings into the ICC profile via 
dictType Metadata is a very big help.

The user chooses his printer profile and the driver is setup 
automatically with the correct settings without any user inventions.

best regards
