about, I think it was even discussed at some point.  Actually I wonder if
Epson etc don't use it. in their "Vendor Mode" drivers?  Maybe you could
describe more in detail the advantages in quality which one would attain by
implementing it?

There is another trick, much nastier, which print inspection leads me to
believe Epson may be using: I have the impression they may be clipping to
the user's monitor gamut, so as to preserve WYSIWYG. It is an interesting
question whether we should be doing such an ugly thing.
