ok, thanks. any suggestions for a workaround in the 
meantime? i suppose i could make the property not protected 
and actually set it when i create the node.

is there any provision in the spec for modifying registered 
node types, sort of like ALTER TABLE in sql? (sorry, don't 
have the spec handy, will check when i get to the office.) 
that would allow me to use the hack i suggest above and then 
adapt gracefully once dynamic default values are supported.
