i have a kds 17" avitron monitor and i have found that most of the 
presets (9500, 6500 and 5500)are either too warm or too cool.  i 
currently use the user setting with the rgb values set at 50% each. 
this give me a neutral color.  as long as all of the rgb values are the 
same there should be no color shift.  of course the more or less the 
percentage adjusts the "brightness" of the neutral value.

i also have set the color profile of the monitor to srgb (i work 
primarily for web production), but what we are talking about is monitor 
output.  i have produced a pdf for the printer and printed to a 
non-postscript printer for proofing with good results.  i have not 
tested with a commercial printer though.  i would recommend if you 
decide to give this a go, being the daily users that you are, that you 
run a test with your commercial printer.  however, with the cymk output 
provided by scribus should not affect negatively the results you are 
used to.
