Obviously, the level of accuracy required of monitor and printer
profiles isn't possible or required.  I don't remember suggesting
otherwise.  If you don't want to use film terms (profiles), then
don't.  The scanner police won't break down your door, I promise.
Since any modern hi-end scanner will allow either approach I fail to
