Agreed. I've attached a screenshot is what I've got prototyped in GTK
right now. The user can see what profile is going to be used  (if they
care...), which changes in real time as the different paper types and
output modes are changed. At the moment it's just showing the profile
title in the label, but we can easily add the date to that if
required. Also, the profile was created on plain paper, so if you
select "Glossy" you actually get "ColorMunki, HP Photosmart b109s
Series Glossy Media".

It's a little way off being pushed upstream to GTK, but it shows what
my intentions are. Feedback welcome.
