Actually, you can choose the ICC profile with which the Printer Manages Color. Below is a screenshot of the driver dialog (accessed from within Picture Window Pro. Sorry PS folks, the universe is bigger than Adobe Inc.). Five "modes" are offered. You choose Off (No Color Adjustment) when your program manages color. You choose ICM when you want the printer to manage color using an ICC profile of your choice. You then go to the Advanced sub-dialog to choose which profile.

The price paid is that you don't get to choose Perceptual or Relative Colorimetric rendering intent, so indeed you give up that part of color management to the printer. Well, you have probably seen that the choice between the two often makes little or no difference, and with experience you can get a feel for when it may or may not make a difference -- how "extreme" are the colors in the particular image, etc.
