I've generally found those film-type "profiles" 
(not the ICC kind, but the kind you find in some 
film-scanner-drivers) to be useful, at best, 
as starting points.  Interesting that NikonScan 
(3.1, at least) doesn't have them at all, yet 
does a pretty good job at inverting negatives 
and coming up with useful, believable images 
with different types of negative film.
