I wouldn't think so. The biggest shift in calibrating a monitor correctly comes from setting the black point, white point, and color temperature correctly, which can be done fairly well with your eyes and a set of instructions. For the majority of people who just want reasonable consistency between computers and between computer and print, that very rough calibration is probably good enough. On the other hand, monitors are imperfect, and their calibration does drift measurably over time. The kind of people who need a full calibration rather than a rough adjustment will also care enough to recalibrate regularly to correct for the calibration drift. I don't see a lot of room between the two poles.
