I understand the compatibility argument, but the fact that different
implementations do different things, in my mind, adds to the importance of
defining the defaults so that users get interoperable behaviour. (I don't
really care very much what the defaults are, that's a second-order discussion.)

We could address the compatibility concern by suggesting that implementations
that have provided different defaults in previous product releases could
provide a configuration switch to retain the previous behaviour.
