Hello Mike and all,

Your described workflow for Mac OS X hase from my point of view 
following problems in an remote server envirronment:

- If printer profiles associated to a driver setting are new installed 
or updated, they have to be updated on every client.

- for me, it is still unclear under Mac OSX, how the connection between 
a printer profile and a driver setting is automatically maintained under 
Mac OS X. If new profiles (associated with a driver setting) are 
installed at the client side, we have currently no mechanism (profile 
meta data) to synchronize the usage of the profile and selection of the 
driver setting

- It is still unclear for the enduser under Mac OS X, how rendering 
intents are handled and blackpoint compensation could be activated.

best regards
