Hmm, yes, it would be a problem especially when loading a .blend file
and the script is compiled for the first time and then just resets all

Ok, i was suggesting using separate nodes to keep variants of the node
in different contexts, but that may be too complicated.

But how about adding an explicit "reset to defaults" button? That way
one could quickly test the OSL parameter defaults without destroying a
carefully set up scene.
