This is something I've been struggling with for the last couple of
days. I think it's sane to assume the default profile to use with
untagged content or for a missing device profile is going to be sRGB.
Does this even need to be configurable?

If yes, is it device-specific, user specific or system specific?
Surely if you're worried about the default fallback colorspace, you
might as well manually assign the specific output profile to the
specific device and then you don't care about the fallback anymore.
