Depends... once a file is gamut limited to sRGB, unless you intend to crank 
the saturation in a larger color space, its not going to get any wider. That 
leaves consistancy, say to have all the images in a document from the same 
workingspace, and such reasons. But I should also point out that changing 
workingspaces is not an option if your printer profiles were built in
