Colour Checker Passport
I've wondered the same myself. Honestly, I tend to use the Adobe Labs DNG Profile editor which to me is more likely to be accurate when using those profiles in Photoshop or Lightroom.
I've done some test and comparisons and tend to "like" the look of the profiles that I get from the CCPP using the Adobe software rather than the X-Rite supplied program. (Maybe X-rite has updated it since I first used it, I dunno.) It is somewhat interesting that you would get very different results considering the color swatches are supposed to be standardized.
