I think he is referring to designers and photographers in the first place and in that case he is quite right. Some designers don't need CMYK/L*a*b, but these ones work on web-design and/or icons (like Jimmac or Tigert or Garret).

So in your are those people "like Jimmac" not "real pro's" or is yanik wrong when he states that "real pro's" will not use GIMP until there is CMYK support.

The point that is trying to creep out here is that
GIMP does not require CMYK support for "real pro's" to use it, but that some people require CMYK support
in order from GIMP to be useful to them.

Those are quite different facts.
