I personally prefer the term "Print Mode" for the whole thing, but I
guess I'm biased :^).

Call the whole thing "print settings bundle"

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.
