No, what we see here is a particular element of a workflow with an 
integrated cms. The CMM is just a little, but elementary part of a cms 
workflow. And in this particular regard lcms is very good and _can_ 
compete to the commercial pendants.

The advantage of the adobe workflow might be - in this step of evolution 
of FOSS - usability. 
Adobe managed it to be one of the leading enterprises of graphics 
solutions, due to their efforts they are made by improving the 
usability. They are leading in integrated color aware solutions.

But I think that does not affect the CMM. Little-cms, in my point of 
view (afaik), can compete with adobe ACE, and colorSync.

But this is often like that: FOSS projects are sometimes superior or 
equal to commercial products in their technical regard, but may could 
not compete in usabity aspects. But nevertheless the FOSS projects are 
going to make a really huge effort in this field too.

Kind regards
