Luca,

When exporting, at File Settings > Color Space you can choose Other and select any RGB color space your system is aware of.  A limitation of this approach in Lightroom export is that you cannot select rendering intent.

Andrew, I'm a bit confused about what you wrote. My knowledge is that you can export an image with the output profile embedded only when using "print to Jpeg" function in the Print module.
Go into this dialog to select the output profile:

Mark, Andrew, thanks for the explanation. I completely missed that feature...

Part of the joy of Lightroom and Photoshop for me is that there is always something new to discover that can be useful.  I did not realize until reading this thread that LR could export in printer color spaces; I always use Photoshop for that when sending files to a lab.  Will now consider using LR to do that if I can control rendering intent.

One of the really cool things about Proof Copies is they remember the rendering intent you used to based the edits once in the Print module.
So I've not got this clear thank to Eric. The only feature here is the RI is remembered, you still have to select the right profile in Print. I was hoping Print took on all the attributes 'assigned' in the Proof Copy, it does not. It only assigns the rendering intent once everything else is setup there for proper color management (eg Not having Printer Color Management etc).
