As in "Joe just installed a bunch of ICC profiles with 666 permissions in his home folder and pointed to them from the PPD file."

We haven't supported system-wide registration of user-owned ICC profiles since CUPS 1.5, but what we did before was completely omit the registration of the printer which made it impossible to later fix things through ColorSync Utility.  With the fix ColorSync actually knows about the printer and allows you to register user profiles.
