The PDF OutputIntent + DeviceXXX should provide a robust way to pass 
through application colour numbers, be that targets or early bound colour

It is not the only way. It is a additional way for experts. As such, 
please do not put CM-off switches into a PPD by default. It will 
bite the majority of non expert users. Better we provide a tutorial on,
how experts can hand prepare a PPD for printing with CM-off.
