Upgraded to PS CC. Very disappointed to discover than in spite of the new CR filter, I still have to use Dr Brown's 'Edit Layer in ACR' script to use Camera Raw within a CMYK file.

Is there a reason his script can do it but it can't be done natively?

The reason this is an issue for me is the use of the script can't be utilized as an action whereas the filter can.

As Steve explained, our imaging pipeline in Camera Raw is entirely RGB-based. You can import CMYK data but internally it will be converted to RGB.
