A solid color bar won't change, but semisaturated colors certainly
will--they'll get dirtier. It's OK to adjust the color settings of a
digital proofer to chase another output device, or with the color settings
of a monitor to chase a proof. Trying to adjust a press to chase another
press is considerably more difficult.
