There is a point, if you intend output to a wider-gamut device than a
screen at some time - for instance photo inkjets such as Epsons.

Using a wide gamut space can have disadvantages. Obviously you can't see on
screen the exact colour values of the image file because the monitor is
constrained to sRGB, and if you need at some point to output to CMYK, you
risk more colours being out of gamut. If CMYK is the eventual destination,
Colormatch RGB is a closer match.

Yup, a good choice and many people do. Ultimately what you do depends on
your intended use.
