If a user wants to georeference a raster file by clicking points on the image and on the canvas, it is necessary to set the CRS of the georeference output to the project CRS.

Unfortunately, the Georeferencer presets the output CRS to the one used last. I suggest to default to the CRS of the current project, and issue a warning when the user changes the output CRS before starting the georeferencing process.

Georeferencing to another CRS only makes sense if the GCP coordinates are read from the raster map itself, e.g. from a grid.
