Yes, I plan on building my own scanner profile. I ordered calibration targets yesterday for the purpose. However, Nikon Scan does not allow one to assign custom profiles, so it will have to be assigned in PS. I am hoping it will limit my need for tinkering in Adobe Camera Raw.

I agree, but what I was trying to say in my previous post is that it is not obvious which setting in NS4 gives the absolute max information possible. I am not making any
image adjustments in NS4, only experimenting with the CMS options, and not all options appear equal. Some of them give widely varying results, but I might try to make a scanner profile for each setting, apply them, and see if the results end up looking the same. I'll let you know, hopefully within a couple weeks.
