Not necessarily true. You would be relying on the CMM to special case
the conversion, short circuiting it if the profiles are the same.
Not all CMM's may do this.

I dislike this approach in any case - it is non-obvious, and unusual behavior.
Much better to have a mechanism to say "this is a profiling print",
where the intention of the print job is explicit.
