This behavior breaks backwards compatibility though? Imagine if we did
this for all properties in Blender, change them to the new default
unless they have been modified. I think it would break many files. I
don't know how you would deal with that in Houdini, maybe changing
defaults doesn't happen much once a feature has been implemented?
