I recall a long time back he said he was deriving some part of his film type
correction curves or matrix data from film type data from Kodak for PhotoCDs.

Vuescan has an option to tag files with the selected color space profile
(except for Device RGB, which according to the help file "doesn't embed any ICC
profile into the TIFF or JPEG files..."). The embedded profile is recognized
by Photoshop (at least it is in my config). ProPhoto RGB is one of the color
spaces Vuescan offers for file output.
