Choose a better university then...

Inkscape SVN now supports LittleCMS

There are many people using Scribus for real, professional work now. It might 
not be perfect in some areas, and perhaps not for you but you talk like the 
OSS graphics apps really are a long way behind in most things which is 

So, you have surely posted a bug with Adobe to remove all profiling support 
from InDesign too I assume.

Gimp will support CMYK and colour management in the future. Krita already 
does, and up to 64bit.
