Yes but why would you want to work in a colour space that you know you are going to 'loose' colour from? Lightroom can be changed to work in the sRGB if required. A colour transformation, perceptual or relative is still changing the colour so I why would you want to do it? .. I wouldn't.

One way is to shoot RAW and set your raw converter's noise reduction to remove any noise. But be warned not to apply too much (don't use the default setting) as this gives a 'banding' look to sky's which can be mistaken for compression.
