CMYK ICC profiles are large, as they contain a 4D grid of measured colors sampled throughout the space. This could be added as a linked file, but could not be expressed as a table of chromaticities because printed color is non-additive.

For a single CMYK space,  [FOGRA 39](http://www.color.org/fogra39.xalter) (ie ISO 12647-2:2004 / Amd 1) seems like a good choice as it is widely used in many countries, and is stable. Need to check with FOGRA if the profile is freely resistributable.
