I think your piece has sparked some interesting issues, and hope you don't 
feel like you are on the hot seat due to the questions and comments following 
up on it. I agree that the PCM checkbox should probably have no effect on 
this print method; there are so many variables its hard to get an absolute 
answer for everything the first time around! There has been some back and 
forth about PCM in Photoshop previously, and the general answer is that it's 
only function is to send profile data down the data stream for later use, but 
PostScript and non-Postscript processes treat this differently. I'm awaiting 
some further info on other issues of applying color profiles in Windows, 
since it has a few quirks that may change the general rules. If I find out 
anything useful I'll send a note about it to this list.
