Well, it's all in the camera manual. Most modern cameras will even tag
the image with the colorspace used.

Well, maybe I should have said "perfectionists". I know quite a few
photo forums where you will get severely bashed if you try to convince
the members that standard profiles are useable.

And you don't do adjustments after the RAW processing either? Because
if you adjust curves in your image editing program you are just
splitting the "per image" profiling into two steps.
