I would recommend being careful when explaining what sRGB is. A lot of people are under the mistaken impression that it's just the transfer function (AKA the "gamma curve"), but being a RGB color space it also specifies the chromaticities of the primaries. So you can have the situation where perhaps you use the primaries but not the transfer function, which is what people are usually using when they refer to "linear" space. Or you can have other standards (like Rec. 709) that use the same primaries, but have a different transfer function. You generally don't have to worry about that until you need to work in another color space, and then things can get confusing if you don't understand what the color space is actually specifying.
Thanks, I will take that into account
