Why do you care since ACR always embeds the correct ICC profile in the JPEG files it saves directly? The ICC profile should override any exif color space settings.
Yes, thats's true (as noticed in the previous question) but some customers reading photo files asked why they read "undefined" color space using a Microsoft photo exif viewer or another viewer that reads exif info "as is".
The question is only about the different behaviour of ACR and PS saving a JPEG. If PS saves (after JPEG 8 bit conversion) with the correct tag, why ACR doesn't write it down the same when saves for JPEG?
Probably the tag should be saved as sRGB (value = 1) only with the sRGB save in ACR, while in any other case (AdobeRGB, ProPhotoRGB, Color Match RGB) should be tagged "undefined" (65535).
I wonder if this is related to an unresolved problem I posted over in the Bridge forums: http://www.adobeforums.com/cgi-bin/webx/.3bc3c9bd/3
From Windows' perspective, I'm missing a lot more of the EXIF tags than just color space.
