How does dcraw treat a raw file?  That would give us a good hint.

For what it's worth, dcraw offers the following -o (output) options:

0 = raw [sic]

1 = sRGB

2 = Adobe RGB

3 = Adobe Wide

4 = ProPhoto (but D65, not D50).

5 = XYZ [sic]

<file> = apply output ICC from file


<file> = apply camera ICC profile from file or "embed" [sic]

Thanks, xpatUSA.  Yes, those are the choices for an output space.  So it would appear that XYZ is a possible output space, but it is not employed as a matter of course during processing, which is what I'd figure.  It's like RPP allows LAB as a choice for an output space, but it doesn't figure in any of the basic rendering operations.
