interessting suggestions

A target could be prepared with other specialised tools.
tiff2target target.tif -o=target.pdf --device-profile="output-enriched-profile.icc"
pdf2target target.pdf -o=target.pdf --device-profile="output-enriched-profile.icc"

"target.pdf" would simply be printed with CPD without any manual
