You are missing the third alternative, which is to tag
the test files.

I've done a rough draft of such an approach, and put it here:
<http://www.argyllcms.com/SCPS_Tag.txt> if you are interested.

[We used this approach very successfully on the ColorBus RIP]

This approach does not exclude others. An application could have
an option to add this tag, or a printer configuration or print
dialog could have an option of adding or overriding the tag.
