Are you shooting RAW? RAW images have no color space (or more correctly the color space is the color capability of the image sensor in the camera) so Aperture assigns Adobe just to assign something. Aperture uses a wide gamut format internally.
You will need to decide on export what color space to use depending on how the image will be used.
If you're shooting JPG then the camera's setting should be showing in the metadata in Aperture but again as Aperture works in a wide gamut format it will have no affect. If this is the case, you are shooting JPG, post back.

"Aperture assigns Adobe just to assign something. Aperture uses a wide gamut format internally."
I have not seen this written before. Can you point me to that Apple notice. I know the internal wide gamut (Non linear) profile has a mystery secretive name, but I think the Adobe98 profile for viewing is wrong. I could be wrong and would luv to wrap my head around what Apple does do in CM handling.
I think Tony is importing tifs or jpgs but wanted to confirm that he is not shooting Raw +jpg and importing both. You are as usual correct about Raw not having a profile. I was going to suggest that he take a file that has imported wrong from his camera directly and place it on his desktop. Then open it in Colorsync Utility to see what profile it sees.

For your first question:
Setting your colorspace in Aperture
In contrast with Adobe Photoshop, you don't have to set your "workspace." Instead, Aperture will always work in a wide gamut, except for when you apply Onscreen Proofing,
As for the assignment it is just from personal experience. Not having access to the source it is impossible to say for certain but in my case with a Canon 40d if I shoot JPG the camera setting is added to the metadata, if I shoot RAW Adobe RGB is in the metadata.
It is possible that the camera itself is filling in this field in RAW mode (actually thinking about it that is more probably than Aperture adding it) but in either case it is meaningless for RAW images,

I read that article again and agree they do have a onscreen proofing capability and use some form of a wide gamut space internally. Im perplexed by Apples CM.
Back to Tony now.... Try looking at the file in Colorsync let us know what you find.

I shoot Raw on a 5 D
I carried out a test. I shot an image RAW in sRGB then imported this into Aperture.
In Aperture the colour space displayed as "Adobe 1998'
I changed the export settings to sRGB. Exported to Photoshop. Again, checked the colour settings = sRgb.
Things seem to be ok

AH you are shooting Raw. Sorry I missed that and Frank is right Raw is Raw it cannot be defined by a any camera settings. Not until it reaches a program like AP3, LR or ACR. AP3 shows my Raws ... colorspace unknown ... my profile space as A98. This is odd and something I didnt notice before. My onscreen proofing is always set at A98 but is turned off. Onscreen proofing should not play a part of this at this time. Would be nice if Profile space showed the name of the WideGaumet space that Apple says it uses internally, (not sure it really does).
Yes If you pick an export profile to export to you will get that profile. You can make a A98 export preset or a ProPhoto preset.
