Vuescan utilises an internal matrix which does the job of a scanner
profile. This calibration is derived by Ed from a Q60. Ed has
integrated this into VS (rather than implementing it as a proper,
changeable profile) to stop people stealing it and using it in other
software. However it does limit you to a generic profile for the
rather than one you make yourself.
I can see Ed's point of view, since scanners generally seem to diverge
little from a generic spec so his characterisations are fine. However
might do better to change the architecture to use proper profiles, and
us his profiling tools - Vueprofile? - as well :)
As a workaround, if you have a DIY scanner profile and Photoshop, you
obtain completely raw high-bit scans from your scanner via Vuescan and
apply the profile in PS.
