I wonder why ColorOutput was removed.  ColorFunction is used /before/ 
generating the graphic.  ColorOutput could be used to convert to 
GrayLevel after it has been generated, making it easy to create several 
versions of the graphic without additional software.

But it is true that in v 5.2 ColorOutput -> CMYKColor was far from 
precise ...

Just try

Plot3D[Sin[x y], {x, 0, 3}, {y, 0, 3}]
Show[%, ColorOutput -> CMYKColor]
