Choosing L*a*b* or sRGB when exporting PANTONE spot colors


I am trying to export libraries from PANTONE Color Manager. However, when I open the library, and go to File/Export/Adobe Illustrator the PANTONE option is grayed out, and I can only choose L*a*b* or sRGB. How can I export PANTONE?

Both sRGB and L*a*b* are PANTONE spot-color options.

Most users will export in L*a*b* as this is the basic color space for color-managed print workflow.

sRGB is the default space for the Web and thus would be specific to web design.
