If Tungsten (or any other black body) lamps are no longer obtainable, is there any point in making a Tungsten profile ?

My take is that you need two sets of color conversion matrices, so Lightroom has two points to interpolate between.

The color conversion matrices vary with correlated color temperature. With a set of two points, Lightroom/ACR can use the estimated WB to interpolate between the two set of data.

Note that the 'color matrix' is different between D50 and Illuminant A. Having two starting points, LR/ACR can estimate the correct 'color matrix' based on the 'WB' of the image.

Best regards
