Thanks.  Are you saying one can assign a profile to the whole pdf  
that will apply to all elements that don't already have a profile  
(spot colour tag etc.) of their own?

Using something like pgf one can continuously vary the colour of an  
element (which could be a glyph, a paragraph etc.).  This would  
require more than one spot colour but as far as I can see a single  
profile would be sufficient.

Do I look for that technique in TUGBoat 2003?
