  I remember Adobe's Chris Cox commenting on sRGB being represenative of
"cheap" monitors.  More appropriately, I believe the people who created sRGB
space thought it was representative of "most" monitors.
  Although print spaces shouldn't be considered to have a "larger" gamut,
some of their color capabilities (cyan-green-yellow) are considered outside
typical monitor spaces.  Therefore, most consider sRGB to have too small a
gamut for anything other than wwweb presentation.

  Why convert your archived scan to anything?  Leave it the way it is, and
convert it when you're ready to use it again.  Once you convert to a smaller
gamut, you can never get it back (short of hitting 'ctrl-z')
