I think this would be a big usability improvement. It should be able to be turned off however (wildintellect), but the default behavior when opening a new project should be that the Map CRS inherits from the CRS from the layer, when possible.
Perhaps I am missing something however - the text in the QGIS Options CRS tabs says: 'when layer is load that has no coordinate reference system (CRS)' do...
I have 'Prompt for CRS Checked' and when I open a shapefile in BC albers (epsg 3005)
...the map still defaults to EPSG 4326, which is not the behavior I would assume based on that description.
Is something wrong with my system or is that description of out sync with intended behavior?
