IIRC, there used to be a lot of code in many places to have centralised 
defaults. I guess it wasn't very consistent and has bitrotted. I'd 
suggest that you actually test all the modules for this.

I suspect that it's because nobody has really pushed for this kind of 

I'd suggest that you file bug reports on this. *Not* working in the way 
you describe is definitely broken.
