For what it's worth, my experience has been that Argyll does a pretty good job overall when the number of patches is small. Back when my only instrument was a ColorMouse which had to be placed individually on each patch, I was getting RGB profiles of "acceptable" quality* using only 120 patches in total. A dozen or so of those were hand-picked to cover the near-grey axis more thoroughly.
(* by "acceptable" I mean good enough that photos look nice, as opposed to good enough that printed Pantone colours match the swatchbook!)
