If I understand that discussion correctly, gajim _copies_ the defaults
into the user's configuration, so they aren't really "defaults" anymore,
but are indistinguishable from user settings?

A better solution is to keep those separate & only merge them at runtime
(and you could also implement three levels: default, system, user).
The default values would be kept with the program (and would get updated
with every program update), system config (if used) would go somewhere
under /etc on linux, unix, etc., and user config goes somewhere in de
user's $HOME.

If I understood that correctly I'll add the above to the bug report...
