A plug in could then be applied to interpret the data inside "imported" LUT file. "Apply Color LUT" would just do what it does on the file that's now directly IN a comp.

 

Since most shots only have a few LUTs, templates can be setup and hidden LUTs lost in a plug in become a thing of the past. Better still, scripts can be written to swap LUT files at the project level container level.

 

I recognize this is a significant shift away from where we are now, but if you don't ask...
