1. see a couple posts above for some examples

2. even if a printer can't handle a color, so what, you can at least see the color on screen

IMHO the only way to present a photo with the colors/tones you intended is to print. Very few average people (for instance clients) know how to color manage and have a calibrated display. The final output is typically print.

My experience is that Adobe RGB or eciRGB (the working profile I use) are completely sufficient and avoids unnecessary large adjustment when proofing. The only real world case I have seen where ProPhotoRGB has an advantage is saturated yellow/oranges for printing.

sRGB is only for displays and kiosk printing.

To display the difference between sRGB and wider gamuts  proofed prints from both gamuts of greens, for instance a forest with different tree species in varying lighting, usually convinces the most fanatic sRGB fan.
