Forgive my ignorance here, but am I correct in my understanding that 
this attribute provides a URI for clients to retrieve the profile?

So ideally, the client should retrieve the profile and transform the 
colorspace into the appropriate DeviceXXX space, and tag the 
raster/document as such?

Otherwise, the client should submit the document tagged with a standard 
(eg sRGB or AdobeRGB) colorspace, and let the printer do any necessary
