Two issues:

- - The proposed spelling weakens documentation / enforceabiliy of the
  contract ('**kw' doesn't tell you what the allowed keys are, and in
  fact implies that you can pass arbitrary keys).

- - It's backward-incompatible:  there are cases in the wild using
  'default' as a positional parameter.
