I like them quite a bit, although current C1 camera profiles have made it more a matter of personal taste than a necessity. I have Magne profiles for the Canon 10D, 1D2 and 1DS2 cameras.
A couple of caveats. Magne doesn't seem to be producing new profiles, the latest I've seen is for the original 5D (not the MK2). So I am not sure he is still in business. Additionally, the Etcetera site seems to be having problems.
Part of the loss of appeal may be that the tools for color have come a long way since the days of the 1Ds II.
LightRoom can create an accurate profile using a Color Checker Passport and tweak a particular hue one way or another.
Capture One Pro can create an accurate (or aesthetic) using a built in sophisticated ICC profile editor ("color editor") including color uniformity, saturation based changes, and color shifts and save a new ICC profile for that camera.
