Hello all,
We have to use cases here

1) colormanaged print pipeline:
Here I would recommend, that pdftoraster embeddd the ICC-profile with 
embedded Gutenprint settings into the raster-file for Gutenprinttoraster.
Gutenprinttoraster parses the rasterfile for an embedded ICC-profile 
with Gutenprint-settings, if profile and settings are detected, 
Gutenprint imports temporarly this settings.
If nothing is detected, Gutenprint uses default settings or settings 
specified trhough PPD options.

2) tdevice state printing
Gutenprints gets an rasterfile without embedded profile and settings. 
Gutenprint settings are defined through the CPD advanced settings.
If advanced users want to do applications based printer color 
management, they create through CPD a preset with the preferred 
Gutenprint settings.
