Linear light workflow questions

I've been playing around with Linear workflow and 32bpc a bit, and I like it. But, I still don't understand some stuff:
- I have a project set up with 32bpc sRGB and linearized. I then want do do some keying on the footage, and from what I have heard, it's best to do that in gamma corrected space (video). So, if I use the Color Profile Converter and set Input to working space and output to srgb, I get a very bright image. Feels like I have a double gamma issue. Should I check any of the linearize checkbox in the color profile converter?
- What operations do you not want to do in linear space? I've heard about keying, what else is there?
- Say I work in a linear space with Linear EXRs, how do I go ahead to render these out as LOG dpx? Since the source is a EXR, I cant use the Cineon Converter and do a Lin to Log, can I?
It would be wonderful if anybody could help me out with these questions. Thank you.
