They are what they are, and as long as they are converted meaningfully into the output space, it doesn't make too much difference how they're used as a working space.

But that is precisiely the point being made - that the "Melissa" preview display, histograms, and color values reflect sRGB (tone-level) values only - and do not reflect ProPhoto RGB or Adobe RGB.

I would assume that the ProPhoto RGB output space is legitimately ProPhoto RGB.

In terms of color-gamut, yes. In terms of preview appearance, histograms, and color values, no.

But, isn't this only as a working space?  If so, that's not great, but it's not the same as saying that the conversion on "export" is not to a proper ProPhoto RGB output space.  Is that what you're saying?  As far as I know, Melissa is not used as an output space.

As to using sRGB as a work-around, I wouldn't want to limit myself to that in many circumstances.

Who would ? That is my point.

understood.
