Just to add a word to dual-illuminant profiles, here is a some clarification form dcamprof/lumariver manual:

A suitable combination of illuminants are StdA and D50 - D65. That is one profile for daylight/flash and one for warm indoor light. The idea of a dual-illuminant profile is to make it more user-friendly, as you don’t need to manually switch profiles for different lights. A common misconception is that dual illuminants makes the profile more accurate, but it’s not about that. In terms of accuracy it’s always better to have a single-illuminant profile designed for the light used, than having a dual-illuminant profile interpolate an in-between light.

Br, Pawel.

Yup.  Obviously individual profiles for every illuminant is the most accurate - but for general purpose use, a dual-illuminant profile meets 95%+ of the typical person's needs.

(One example of where it would likely fail is very low-quality artificial lighting such as LPS/HPS, or mixed lighting - the latter is frequently a no-win situation...)
