You correct for the master in an RGB working space. Then you load a soft proof of one of the five output needs and if necessary create output specific adjustment layers based on that soft proof. Easier to do in Lightroom thanks to a true before and after preview. You can just create a duplicate of the master image in PS, view it as such (your Before), then edit on the original, don't save the dupe after corrections. I'd place these output specific edits in a layer set with the name of the output profile used and it's rendering intent. Save off an iteration with everything baked into single layer doc, ideally in output color space based on the profile you used for soft proofing. Send that to (fill in the blank).
