It actually seems like I got it kind of right altough my terminology is not so precise. I did think that calibration is getting the screen "back to neutral" so it behaves nice and well within its color space (and adjusting whitepoint, brightness, gamma, that was what I meant by desired target), and profiling is measuring and modeling what that neutral really is.
That's basically right, but note that gamma is not directly relevant to profiling, since profiling takes into account the calibrated device behaviour (ie. in an ideal color managed workflow, changing the calibrated display gamma should have no effect on the final appearance.) Calibrated gamma has a primary influence for non-color managed appearance, but only a secondary influence on the quality of the color managed appearance (accuracy of profile, precision of control over graduations etc.) Graeme Gill.
