Is it possible to change the prototype used by default when importing from OmniFocus?

As I just mentioned in the Prototype Glitch thread, I have noticed that items dragged from OmniFocus automatically get assigned the Task prototype and that the built-in Task prototype is installed and used if no prototype by that name exists.

I am wondering if there is a way to override the default prototype for OmniFocus (or other apps)?

My reason for doing this is wanting to have all prototypes use a common prefix to avoid accidental duplication of prototype names.

My workaround is to have an agent that detects notes with the Task prototype and changes the prototype to the one I am using for task (“p.Task”) and this works fine, but wondering if there is another approach I should be using.

This assignment on import can’t be user set. Your workaround seems a practical one.
