Does profiling your skates make that much of a difference??

Are you actually getting the new skates profiled or just sharpened? The initial sharpening will take time since the blades are not "pre-sharpened" for a number of reasons. If you are actually getting them completely profiled, then it's a matter of how drastic a change your new profile is from that of a manufacturer's stock profile.
I agree that the new runners supplied with skates will have matching profiles, they are machine cut and match with a few thousandths of an inch.
