I have some sympathy for expressing defaults within a bounded area. However, some thought needs to be put into the logistics when mapping / inputting data.
I would "hope" that there would be editor support -- otherwise how does one determine whether a given tag/value combination can be omitted -- because it is the default! Unfortunately, that means that every editor would have to iterate out to find defaults in ever increasing areas -- unless defaults aren't allowed to be nested, which imho reduces their usefulness significantly. Similarly, I'm having trouble conceptualizing what adding / changing a default value on a bounding area should mean -- are existing inherited default values now implicitly updated, or do they need to be examined individually. Finally, how does one indicate that a value is not able to be determined -- and should not immediately be inherited -- leaving it blank is no longer an option!
