    If you have absolutely no need for a color space with a larger gamut
than sRGB, then you may as well be using it ... archive to target.  But I
believe you're wrong about sRGB being the suitable color space for Epson
printers, and sRGB certainly does not contain some colors available to print
with Epsons ... even AdobeRGB doesn't.

    You are correct in saying there is a "potential" for messing up your
print with color space conversions, but it isn't necessarily the case ...
you simply need to know what you are doing within a chosen workflow.  (...
granted, it sometimes isn't so simple ...)
