But I don't *want* to set the value. I want a *default* value which is
only used if there currently is no value!

I thought the semantics of what the frontend thinks is default was

if value exists then value else default

Is this wrong? Now do I have to start by checking if there is a value,
and if not, set it? Why aren't substitutions allowed in Defaults? Can't
there be situations where you want to substitute part of a Default and
want the rest to be translated?
