This conversion would be User_RGB -> "sRGB PCS" -> LAB.

You cannot get from User_RGB to "sRGB as PCS" without going through XYZ. XYZ is the PCS ("Profile Connection Space") for converting between RGB color spaces. sRGB is not a Profile Connection Space.

You cannot get from "sRGB as PCS" to LAB without first converting from "sRGB as PCS" to XYZ. LAB is a mathematical transform of XYZ, not sRGB.

This is the normal path from User_RGB to LAB: User_RGB -> XYZ -> LAB. Two conversions.

You want to take this path, yes? User_RGB -> XYZ -> "sRGB as PCS" -> XYZ -> LAB. Four conversions, going through XYZ twice.

Why is the second path preferable?

With respect,
