Call default importer from custom importer?

I am working on custom quicktime importer which main point is to alter movie xmp metadata. After that I want to pass that file(s) to default quicktime importer. Is there a way to do this?

    unfortunately, no.

    Once you've taken control of a file for import it's up to you to do all the work.

    There is no way to hook in other importers either at this time (it just got added to exporters).

    And if you use open source (like FFmpeg or libav) to do all that work you would be in violation of patents and licenseing terms.
