DdlUtils currently interprets the value in the XML default attribute
to be a literal and will use it in quotes when creating the SQL (if
the type requires that, which is the case for date types).
Working around that would require a new XML attribute which cannot be
done with the current DTD (because DdlUtils does not control it). But
please feel free to file an enhancement issue in JIRA.
