I'm not saying the prepress company wouldn't do it, just that I
think it would be a completely silly reason for not supplying the

Indeed. Their clients (Fortune 500 companies, every last one of them) pay dearly for them to develop exact color matching profiles that match the specific printing presses, stock, and inks they use.
