Untagged files are assumed to be sRGB. That is the assumption that the
GIMP code makes all over the place. Actually most parts of GIMP
(basically everything except the display code) don't care about the
color profile at all and will assume sRGB no matter what profile is
attached. It is thus recommended to convert all images to sRGB during
the import into GIMP. This is surely far from ideal, but that's the
current situation and it is not likely to change before everything is
fully ported to GEGL.
