afaik, you have to enable the profiling in inkscape, when choosing the 
colors you want to use for your drawing.

RGB is not a problem at all: you will have a bit less controll on the 
colors you are using since at some time the RGB colors will have to be 
translated to CMYK, but -- with correct profiling -- you will have a 
good preview on the monitor.

finally, you will have to get the profile for the printer used by your 
print shop and create / get the profile for your monitor...

you can find many very usefull in the archive of this mailing list or 
just wait for good hints from the scribus community!
