Without the ability to print targets though, the whole print
chain is worthless since there's no way of color profiling it.

Making it super difficult to profile means that people who are
inclined to do so, will simply will give up. And that means
that profiles won't be made to let the other 99% of users
get good color. So the end result is that people either
have to put up with bad color on your system, or move over to
a system that does let them (or the experts they rely on) get
what they want.
