We always bake to sRGB and have the computers use that as their display profile.  Nuke doesn't respect the actual display properties, so we don't want Photoshop to either.

In the past few years Photoshop has added the Color Lookup adjustment layer and artists are starting to turn off color management in Photoshop and use that instead, which matches Nuke exactly.

Would this be a good time to mention how nice it would be if Adobe would add OCIO as an option or let us set an explicit LUT for display?  I guess their response would be to tell those smaller companies like Autodesk and the Foundry to adopt their ICC workflow.
