I don't know why anyone that is printing would edit in ProPhoto color space as wide gamut monitors are going to show hues that can't possibly print....

Here is a comparison of the color spaces to the gamuts of the the Epson 2880 and 4900 and as you can see you can't print all the colors of any color space.

Bob, your point is well taken, but we are talking about working spaces not output spaces. At some point before ink hits paper the gamut of the original scene has to be reduced considerably. The question is when is it best to do that. Is it better to do that before processing or just before printing (or posting or projecting)?
