From a personal POV I'd prefer the first option, as:
* most of our browsers already ship a customized search-engine list,
  so tailoring DDG url here won't really be invasive
* there is no default-conf/revenue tradeoff (as I strongly see it in the
  second case)
* each maintainer still keeps the final word on the configuration (ie.
  if a no-customization/minimal-diff-to-upstream policy is in use).

Given the above reasons, first proposal looks more aligned with our
philosophy and guidelines.
