NO. Under no circumstances.
The CUPS "color-management=off" flag and the internal Gutenprint flags
cannot be linked.
This would break the intended  functionality.

As an example, assume I want to profile one of the *existing* historical
print workflows for say an Epson 9600; the present PPD  invokes a lot of
hand-established calibration, but as a first attempt I would simply switch
CM off at the system level and attempt to profile over the existing
behavior in the hope that the result is usable. So in this example, I would
not be using the "Raw" flag in Gutenprint.
