All raw converters ultimately have to take the demosaiced raw camera coordinates (RGB or GMCY) and map them to XYZ or Lab, though it may be only an intermediate step. This is especially true for raw converters that use ICC profiles, where either XYZ or Lab D50 is the working space. The final mapping from XYZ to any of the standard RGB spaces is just a linear transform plus an encoding curve. The lookup tables provide a mechanism for non-linear corrections (e.g., if you need to tweak deep saturated reds differently than less-saturated reds, something the earlier matrix-only profiles obviously could not do).

Thу above is incorrect.

(Perhaps) one exception being RAW Photo Processor (RPP) ?

The "have" part is totally wrong. Fantastically wrong.

Interesting.

I think IB is nitpicking to certain extent on Eric... software developer certainly can avoid using XYZ or Lab for any internal postdemosaick operations and can avoid using any CMS transforms involving PCS = XYZ or Lab

And it is not nitpicking. It is a serious thing to consider.

if he wants to

Not the matter of what one wants but the matter of what is better.
