Looking ahead to a final film out: is there any advantage to shooting HDV in x.v.color (xvYCC) as against any of the other picture profiles available in HDV camcorders?

Well, odds are that your computer monitoring profile is in sRGB. So, in short, unless you set up your post workflow to accomodate this wider gamut, then you won't be able to tell the difference in a way that matters for end product gamut mapping. On top of that, you'll need the correct signalling profile (i.e. HDMI Cat. 2, for instance) to carry it through the workflow.
Really, it depends on where the end product will be going.
