'AddDefaultCharset default' is the exact same as the "old"
'AddDefaultCharset On' directive. 'AddDefaultCharset None' is
the exact same as the old 'AddDefaultCharset Off'. 'AddDefaultCharset foo-bar'
is the exact same as the old 'AddDefaultCharset On; 
AddDefaultCharsetName foo-bar'.

I can see the confusion with 'AddDefaultCharset Default' not being
the same as the "default" value when AddDefaultCharset isn't
set... Basically, I was looking for an easy way to enable it and
default it without the user having to type the iso-xxxx stuff.
But AddDefaultCharset On looked too binary.
