I don't really know of a better solution than the ones you mentioned.
Perhaps someone else will. But yeah if you need to apply that class to the
node with a different value for that param, it can't also get applied from
your default profile.

Having to add it to all of the roles is a bit of a pain too. I've been
there. Then the concern is someone leaving it out accidentally.

I like the suggesting of the conditional in the default profile best. It's
maybe not as clean as Hiera but it's less messy than the alternatives I
think, and it should be very visible there.
