[Openicc] GoSoC 2011: CPD and target printing

Hello all,
I don´t think that printing in device state is only an extreme fraction 
of users.
I see photo-enthusiasts, which are using remote profiling services and 
users which are doing application based printer colormanagement with a 
printer driver setting in device state.

I don´t see any reason not to have an advanced option for printing in 
device state.
Most of all commercial drivers have such option.
The users who need the option are happy to use it and the others don´t 
use it.

best regards
