Default Setting up a printing machine for colour

I am keeping on about this because it is now becoming a huge international issue. and why its important that u use the correct calibration. in Pacific areas
SWop colour and Colourbridge PC and Europe ISO Coated and Colour bridge EC WHY because what happens is that the Pantone CMYK split is adjusted for the different colour process inks between America and Europe (Japan also has its own)
The way we should set printing presses up is by comparing a grey made up of 50 Cyan 40 Magenta 40 Yellow and a grey made up of 50% black. They should be very similar. This means that when u make a neutral grey in Photoshop u get a neutral grey. It also means that we have virtually no lattitude in adjusting colour to impove images.All the adjustments must be done prior to us receiving the file.
I would welcome comments
