Don't mix up colour space and correction profile:
colour space defines how to code a given colour, for an ideal system
correction profile says how to correct that ideal colour so that it
looks correct on /your/ screen.

You don't assign a colour space to a monitor, and you don't assign a 
correction profile to an image...
