Printer manages colors on print corp's paper = print corp's profile?

Interesting article about diagnosing color management workflow on Luminous Landscape at
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/essays/inkjet_debunk.shtml

In particular Edmund Ronald states:

1. Set up the vendor workflow with "Printer Manages Colors" and make a nice colorful test print on vendor paper, making sure to choose the right paper type in the print driver dialog. If the print made with the vendor workflow looks ok, then your hardware is working well. ...

2. If the print from (1) looks ok, then set up your usual profiled workflow, and make a test print using the same vendor paper, the paper settings validated in (1), and the vendor's canned profile. If this print does not match the print made in (1) then your profiled printing workflow is compromised by inappropriate settings or some other software issue — vendor profiles should always match vendor color.

In other words, if you like an Epson paper, for example, forget about downloading the Epson canned profile. Unless you make a custom profile, just let the printer manage everything.
