"Default" = What to choose, if the user doesn't specify anything. So,
I don't see any sense in specifying a default, apart from what Maven
gives us anyways:




Besides, a charset, or locale is sufficient. What would we need a
Locale for? We're not going to format numbers, or currency values,
aren't we?

What we should have, of course, is a Maven parameter


which might be used to overwrite the Maven default.
