I am very much on Ian's side in this. Any color space conversions
has an element of rounding errors and quantization problems in
them, and as long the original color space is a real working space
with the same gamma values (2.2) - like sRGB or AdobeRGB - and not
a device profile space (like a camera/scanner gamut) I would advice
to stay in the original color space.

The one exception is where you start with an sRGB image and want to extend the saturation. Then it is usually better to convert to Adobe RGB (1998).
