Ok. So if we do that, what is the best method to set the defaults? Each
filetype has the colourspace set to the default role.

Would the following order work?

 * Set the filetype default to Null.
 * Test the colorspace variable for a Blender file setting.
 * If Blender file remains unset, test for filename.
 * If it remains unset, set to default role.

Is there a means to differentiate between whether the colorspace variable
was set via default role or user based setting?

With respect,
