So, the most of modern color-managed printing programs performs the dithering

I just see one problem: Printtarg would need to use the same dithering algorithm as the 
"modern color-managed printing program", but how should printtarg know about 
this algorithm?

I.e. in the scenario you describe the profile does not just characterize the 8-bit 
printer, but it needs to characterize the combination of the the specific dithering 
engine of the "modern color-managed printing program", and the printer.
