OK, I am a rank amateur - doesn't the high quality lab take care of their printer and paper profiles, and provide said profiles for integration into your CM editor?

Sure, but having the profile is just one piece of getting color management right. If the photographer doesn't understand how to use the profile, how to soft-proof through it, how to calibrate their monitor, how to make the right choice during color conversions, what different color spaces mean, etc., having the profile might mean that instead of making mistakes with the wrong profile, now they can make mistakes with the right profile...
