    Absolutely.

    Yes. I assume "device specific" means "not specified in the profile".

    Yes. Although I'm not sure how many "print options" will be included in the profile. We want to keep it as simple as possible.

    Yes. See comments for two previous.

    Is the profile trying to solve this one? Or is it up to the Legacy O/S developers?
