I'm using the 1270 and 1280 (which expect RGB data, as i 
understand), and for the sake of this discussion I would be using 
UbuntuLinux (at some point, as the win32 version is available, i may 
use that as well). There are profiles for those printers; I may also 
use 3rd party inks in the future, with their own profiles. 

I did a little more noodling around in the docs, and it appears that 
CUPS can handle profiles, so perhaps that is the answer?
