When using "Save for Web," converting to sRGB, and including including all metadata, an EXIF field describing the color space is populated with the old color space that was used prior to the conversion, not sRGB as it should be.

While (I believe) this does not impact the image itself or the profile attached to it, it can be very confusing. See an example where the EXIF data incorrectly says the profile is ProPhoto when in fact it is sRGB at:
