If the defaults for some drivers are wrong then I can't see why they
should not be fixed, but if default configuration parameters are needed
then they should be provided by the watchdog package.

(BTW, is there any other watchdog daemon? The watchdog package reliably
fails to detect when the system is half-killed by OOM.)
