Import Resources default values
When importing resources to the shelf, the default values should be set to the most common — at the moment the default resource type is "undefined" and the default directory is blank. Both of these are the least useful of the possible options, so why make them default? If the default resource type is "Texture" then 80% of the time, I won't even have to touch that button. "Current Session" is probably the most reasonable default for resource directory.

Basically I need to be able to change the defaults of a material and save them in the shelf without leaving Painter or creating a new material - that would be great.
I would indeed agree that this is useful. Although in my case "Current Project" would be the most reasonable choice for the directory.
