Well until there is a reliable means of including print quality metadata information in the profile in the first place, I don't see it as being all that useful. I'm unaware of any product that enables this inclusion of metadata.

As for including ICC in the name of anything, I think it means nothing to 99% of users. So that makes it clutter for mortal users. Plus, it's entirely conceivable one day there's support for non-ICC profiles.
