Of course you are right. What I wanted say is that in a perfect world a 100% calibrated system will deliver correct color and bw prints.

As we can see in this thread, the world is not perfect, even with high end equipment.

Regarding the paper feed: When using mat paper it will be better (smearing, pizza wheel-problem). I am printing a nozzle check every morning and always on the same deck of papers. The position matches 1:1 in 95% of the prints.
Doing this way is of course one of several options to go.

Let's see what Bonnie reports.
