For monitors, matrix+curves is most appropriate. This is for two
reasons: one, those devices are normally "well behaved", making very
detailed cLUT-type profiles unnecessary. Two, and maybe more important:
most CMMs don't seem to behave well when used with cLUT profiles.
matrix+curves is the most widely accepted type of profile.
