There is indeed something odd about that entry. Even if you set the display preferences to show colorspace (and colorspace data shows up in the preview view), then you still seem to get base space when you download the fastq file. In this case it may be that the only way to get the colorspace data is from the sra file (which I agree is a pain).

It might be worth contacting NCBI since this could just be a bug in their download code.
