Regarding to calibrating/profiling screens, the following article explains why it's almost always better to profile at D65 than D50:

This conclusion has to do with the sensory and cognitive mechanisms which are used differently for print and monitor viewing. Chromatic adaption is not fully achieved by human vision looking at a bright screen at D50. This is not the case of D65, but someone should not compare print and monitor side-by-side. The observer would have to have time to fully adapt to each separately.
