Agreed, even (apparently) simple changes can have unexpected
consequences. The discussions on this topic have been very
interesting, but back to the point. At present, QGIS reports the CRS
of a layer whose projection it cannot determine as the QGIS default
CRS. It would be very helpful if the CRSs of such layers were reported
by QGIS as 'unknown'. At present, right-clicking on a layer and going
Properties -> General can produce downright wrong information on the
CRS of the layer and I think this is undesirable.
