Well, it is possible to inspect available ContainerTypeDescriptions and
their associated supported adapter types (e.g.
IFileTransferContainerAdapter) in order to decide upon a file transfer
type (i.e. see posting today on ecf-dev in response to your email
there). Or consult the user can be consulted via

I have had these thoughts, but resisted the temptation to create too
many new extension points too quickly (i.e. one for file transfer plugin
that does as you describe...and perhaps others for other ECF 'extension'
APIs). I would certainly be ready to add this, however.
