thats true everything is better than a big yellow alert box in the fe.
but i still dont want to explain this bahavior to a redacteur.

adding the default to field as a select field to the ds tables is no
problem at all. and i think to check the values the hook
"processDatamapClass->processDatamap_preProcessFieldArray" in
class.t3lib_tcemain can be used. or do you know a better one.

if you agree i will try to provide a simple extension to do that.

regards Martin

PS: it can take some time i have to manage the move of my girlfriend the
next weeks

PPS: I suggest this behavior in the process_datamap hook:

- check if it is a page or a content/fce
- check weather the field ds will change
- check weather a default to is set in selected ds
- if so set the value of the field to to the default value
