For sure one should use CIELAB. There is a good write up about that color model
here: (you will find CIELAB a little
over half way down the page. CIELAB, while quite good in itself is also the
preferred system for transformation between color spaces - for example going
from RGB to CMYK one is best to go RGB > CIELAB > CMYK, thus, not only would you
have a top rate color system, you would be set up for top rate transformation
functions as well
