I'd say, convert the output file (either to sRGB, the frontier's native
color space, or a dedicated profile for the machine as it is at that
moment). This will allow you to keep a larger colorspace to edit in.
Another reason is that you'll need to sharpen at the final output
resolution, after all other changes to the file, anyway. Might as well take
the step to convert to a narrower colorspace then.
It's confusing at the beginning, try to read a lot, then experiment by only
changing one factor at a time.
Just remember, input devices (should) have their own profile, you usually
work in a different (relatively wide gamut) working space, and each output
device has its own profile. Leaving one element of the chain uncalibrated,
might invalidate most of the chain's outcome.
