No, "moderate" corresponds to the default level of *added* emphasis  
(which the author explicitly specifies for a given text token / markup  
fragment). This is not the default emphasis produced by the speech  
synthesizer.

See:

http://www.w3.org/TR/speech-synthesis/#edef_emphasis

"The emphasis element requests that the contained text be spoken with  
emphasis"
...
"the optional level attribute indicates the strength of emphasis to be  
applied"
...
"The default level is 'moderate'."
