Now that is a tremendous idea.

can you provide any insights as to what the code should look at to
determine which intent is better?  Useful heuristics?  Et cetera?

I suspect that contone images (such as jpegs) should lean towards
perceptual.  And perhaps if all of the colours come from a simple
palette (ie, all fully saturated, or all from the 8bit psuedo-
colour web palette) that may suggest saturated or relative.

Or not?

Perhaps we should allocate a wiki page to collect ideas on automating
intent defaults?
