If you get a colour specification by a client in CMYK, say for a logo, then 
you definitely have to start in CMYK. 
And if something goes wrong - the customer complains "The colours in print are 
not what I intended" and you have to admit you worked with an application 
which does not have CMYK capabilities at all then you have a very weak stand.
In addition, if you can convert images from RGB to CMYK and have a CMYK colour 
picker then you have a second possibility to proof colours in addition to 
colour management by comparing critical colours with swatches.

Yours sincerely
