It would be better than asking users to do it, but you still might get 
into trouble: you have to be careful not to delete files that XFCE 
didn't create.

The individual defaults buttons would be nicer because they allow you to 
revert only the part that you think is messed up.

I understand if it's a low priority enhancement or even not worth the 
trouble at all -- I was merely arguing that it would be useful to me and 
that I'm not a bad person for playing around with my desktop settings.
