It is true that on Windows the user should choose a different LUT than the default which on current drivers is Epson Standard (sRGB). But the printed target isn't useless. You'll actually make a profile that works correctly, although it is restricted in gamut. However, in-gamut colors reproduce correctly.

The problem I'm referring to that does not happen on Windows is ICM getting involved when it's not asked to. That's been a regular problem on OS X, even if it's manifested itself in different ways.
