It's a question of workflow. Just as the Sports Illustrated crowd would 
generally be insane to shoot RAW, for most photographers BetaRGB represents a 
better workflow for what they actually do.

The great thing about picking a standard working space for a RAW workflow is 
that you can optimize your workflow for what you mostly do, and then alter it 
as needed for the occasional exceptions. For most people, that means that 
BetaRGB is going to be better for them most of the time, but you can still 
switch to ProPhoto or whatever when you really do need it.

Premature optimization is the root of all evil.
