I'm sure that has worked for you.

But it does basically mean, that you (and Matt) are correcting the "improperly" set monitor when printing within your sphere of hardware. And I'm sure it works just fine. But as soon as such an image leaves this setup and is imported to a "properly" adjusted monitor, those same problems will creep up.

As long as your images stay within your controlled (and adjustment compensated) environment, all will remain fine. There are a number of people and professionals who operate satisfactorily in such a manner. Just be aware of the complications when leaving that controlled environment.

Example: Some book-printing companies will try to compensate for what they consider wrongly adjusted colors or brightness. I'm not in favor of that since I use color management throughout my workflow and want an image exactly that color with that exact luminance setting (evening or available light shots). I shy away from companies targeting the mass of hobby photographers who haven't a clue about color management and try to compensate as they see fit to "satisfy" the customers. The photographer will lose a great deal of influence, how his/her images will be rendered.
