This would be a good place to insert another "Adobe knows best" rant...but I 
*think* you can probably do what you want by specifying the image profile as 
the printer profile. That should result in a no-op conversion...but I could 
also see it resulting in rounding errors if they actually do a bunch of 
transforms to get back where they started, though the rounding errors might not 
be visible in practice.

So, you might use Argyll to convert to your printer's profile and embed that 
profile into the image. When printing, if you select the same profile for the 
printer, unless Photoshop is *really* messed up, it *should* work. It should 
(that word again) also work if the image is in ProPhoto and you tell Photoshop 
that ProPhoto is your printer's profile.

...or, you can get a Canon imagePROGRAF printer and use Canon's Photoshop 
plugin to send the data to the printer -- and, in so doing, you also send the 
full 16-bit data to the printer.
