I keep hearing this, and have certainly said something similar myself, but I would like to point out that I can distinguish, from across the room, copies of the PhotoDisc test image that have been printed using RGB drivers (from various makes and models of printers, and with excellent ICC profiles) versus copies that have been printed using CMYK Rips. I can't tell at that distance if it was printed on an HP or an Epson, but I can tell that it is from the RGB driver, or the same RGB images through a CMYK RIP. And I feel the color from the RIPs is superior (others are welcome to disagree, if they like the understated color from RGB drivers)... so keep in mind that until you have seen the two side by side with optimal profiles for both, that you might be missing something here.
