Nope. Dan's approach is to go by the numbers
(RGB values, or L*a*b values, or CMYK values)
rather than the appearance of the image on the
screen. So in a way, Dan's approach is quite
absolute and mathematical, if followed rigorously.
I've sent PS 4 files for printing on Lightjet
and have never been disappointed by the output.
No profiles involved, nor did the lab inquire about
profiles, or make recommendations. AFAIK, the
lab did not modify the images I sent.
Call me lucky, maybe.
