[ Nomenclature police: Metamerism is when colors with
different spectral responses match. Metamerism failure
is when colors that should match, fail to match. ]

To have any significant impact on this you need to be able
to play with the black in the print. Generally raising black
levels improves neutral robustness under different lighting
conditions. Often this is at the cost of a more visible screening
and banding artefacts. light black and light light black inks
help make this more palatable. You need a direct driver (RIP) and
other tools to play this game though.
