Alas, OpenStreetMap is a database that speaks of defaults all the time 
but that refuses to encode them 
OSM's defaults must be encoded in other databases.
Best known are the default speed limits that belong to every other GPS 
Instead of just reloading OSM data, users must upgrade those application 
when they change.
So, this discussion belongs in those other databases.

All the best,
