XRite i1Profiler has a fatal flaw

I have been using ProfilerMaker 5, coupled with an i1Pro spectrophotometer, for several years. Today I received an email from XRite announcing the availability of their new i1Publish package, which includes the i1Profiler software. It seemed like a good deal, $500 to upgrade, and it's obvious there is no further work being done on ProfileMaker.

I downloaded the software, usable in a demo mode, and went through the workflow description. There are some interesting new options for printer profiling, BUT there is no provision for OBC (optical brightener correction) using an i1Pro, it's only available if one has an i1Isis chart reader.

Most papers, particularly glossy/semi-gloss, require OBC since they contain optical brighteners. It makes no sense for XRite to issue a new profiling software version that doesn't include this capability for i1Pro (easily the most popular spectrophotometer for color management), but indeed they have, I even called their support line to verify. Needless to say I won't be upgrading.
