If the "base state" is AIX `power` alignment for a platform, I suggest that the 
name be `defaultsToAIXPowerAlignment`.

I am suggesting a change to the comment and not the name here. If both the 
comment and the name uses the same (possibly confusing) form to express the 
concept, then the comment does not aid comprehension of the code.
