I agree with that, CMYK should be a priority when speaking of prepress. GIMP 
or Inkscape are almost unusable for prepress until today since they don't 
work with CMYK. In Inkscape the CMYK color model support is planned for a 
future release (SVG 1.2 specification i think...).

GIMP developers should be ashamed because they focused on "interesting" and 
"funny" functions rather than developing the functionallity needed for 
professional work. Because of that, GIMP is not used by professionals, has a 
weird usability and will never make it in the professional world. I'd rather 
turn my eyes on Krita, a very promising image editing software that WILL 
have CMYK support.
