I am finding this thread to be confusing. In the Color Management section of
the Preferences dialog there is a drop down to set the "File Open behavior"
and the options are "Ask what to do", "Keep embedded profile" and "Convert to
RGB workspace". Shouldn't this setting also affect the way files opened
without an embedded profile work? If not then either is should be
generalized to do so or another preference item for how to handle images with
no profile should be added with similar options. that way the user will have
control over how this behaves.
