        I believe if you would have had Photoshop, you would have found no
profile had been associated with the scanned image with "device RGB"
chosen. (How did you determine "I saw that the image was profiled in
ColorMatch"?)  The RGB values are intended to belong to the device,
but no profile is embedded (note the color space option does NOT refer
to any profile ... the option is "device RGB").  I believe Ed added
this option so that, with Photoshop, you could then "assign" the
appropriate profile ... for example a device profile which may have
shipped with your Nikon.  You could then properly "convert" to a
working space of your choice.  However, I have found this doesn't work
with negatives, because when subtracting the mask Vuescan unavoidably
touches the RGB values with Ed's built-in device profile for the
scanner ... therefore you can no longer use the Nikon device profile
because it is different than the one Ed built-in.  You CAN use the
Nikon device profile if you scanned a slide because Ed's profile
doesn't come into play.
        You almost have to have Photoshop to properly play with and evaluate
this "device RGB" option.  If you are using a different "non-profile
savvy" image editor, you are probably better off choosing sRGB in

shAf  :o)
