Possibly, but it is likely that your darks are a function of the physical 
limits of the inks, while the midtone issues are almost guaranteed to be 
weaknesses in the profile. Its difficult to suggest which would be the cause 
of saturation issues, though a raw CMYK target print from both should show 
which has the larger potential gamut.
