As the man said, you are making this too difficult; or at least difficult in the wrong places. If you read the Profiler directions you will see that they state specificly that it should be used with an uncalibrated scanner, and that all color management in the scanner should be turned off. Admittedly, in some cases where this fails to give the desired result users do differently. In general, "differently" gives a different result, but not necessarily a better one. You are applying your own logic when you state that it "gets away without scanning a reference target" and what other corrections you should make because of this. ProfilerPLUS meets the needs of many users for many hardware and media combinations when used according the directions. For those cases with difficult hardware and media combinations, or more demanding user expectations, adding some form or color management at the scanner end seldom "fixes" the problem, though it may well change the result.
