From 8 to 16 bits and back

Hi,

To work in Photoshop on an existing 8bit JPEG or TIF image, does it make sense to convert after 'Open' to 16bit, do all adjustments and destructive transformations in 16bit, and then convert back to 8bit before 'Save'? (Assuming all the functions I need are available in 16bit.)

And on the same theme, convert from sRGB to ProPhoto and then back to sRGB?

Thanks,
Moshe
