I also find the Adobe Color profile unrealistic, and despite the statements, I not consistent across images from different cameras.

I think Adobe Portrait would be a better choice for a general purpose, nice-looking, realistically saturated profile, but it's aesthetics, really.

Possibly. I did go through them all, and it’s just the one I prefer. It’s also set in the camera.

Adobe Standard is better, but still not great. The most natural looking profiles are the ‘Camera xxxxxxx’ dedicated ones. On my Nikon I use Camera Neutral as a starting point, as I feel there’s much more fine control over the adjustments - I can choose how much saturation is needed, for example.

Jim Kasson compared Adobe Std with Camera Neutral for a Sony camera and his conclusion was that the latter is not really more accurate than the former, it's only less saturated.

Probably right, although I note that article covers older process versions, and almost definitely won’t apply to the latest v5 Adobe Color settings, which are clearly radically different to previous.

i just prefer the neutral base line to work from.

You may just have to try different profiles, and see what works for you. As others have mentioned, you can tweak them, or save new camera default settings, or save as a preset. You might find different profiles work better on certain images.

I agree.
