Today, yes. In the future we will provide a way for the client to retrieve the server profiles remotely.

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
Today, locally-installed/registered profiles (via ColorSync Utility) have to be manually selected in the ColorSync pane of the print dialog, otherwise the default vendor profile (from the PPD) will be chosen.

They can be specified by the application, but there is no standard UI in the print dialog.
