It's likely I have no idea what I am doing. I've used "verify profile" in 
dispcalGUI to check the accuracy of the profiles I've made with it. For the 
curves+matrix profile, I get deltaE of 3.84 average and 8.16 max. 
Subjectively, reds look quite orange (I realize that eyeballing is not really 
a measurement, but we're talking about a stop sign turning into a pumpkin).

For the LUT profile, I get deltaE results of 0.48 and 1.39. Subjectively, 
everything looks as I'd expect. The main problem is the usual problem with LUT 
profiles, compatibility. I get really ugly banding in Adobe Camera Raw and 

The matrix profile from i1Profiler looks extremely similar to the LUT profile 
from ArgyllCMS but without the banding. I don't know to run a report to 
measure its accuracy, but it's within the same ballpark.

Report for LUT profile:

I don't know the incantation to generate this sort of report for the matrix 
profile from i1Profiler.

Profiling for matrix shows a very different gamut than for LUT.
