This is something we are losing with categories. Currently, you can specify "Asides" to be your default category. (Matt does this on for example.)

You can't do this with post formats.

Attached is a very simple patch that adds selecting a default to options-writing, and enforces the default. I have omitted the changes required to press-this for this (it's also just one line of code there) as that requires #15795 first.

(Would require a DB bump on commit.)

It should be noted that this is enforced at a completely different level than default categories. The default category is enforced all the way down to wp_insert_post.

In this case, this patch would only affect the admin UI. It would not affect XML-RPC, which would need to query the default post format themselves if they wished to leverage that. I think this is okay; mobile and desktop apps might prefer to keep their own default based on the various, usually more-specific use cases of remote publishing clients.

This implementation doesn't allow you to select the Standard format if you've specified a non-Standard default! That includes for all pre-3.1 posts, as we have no distinction between no format and standard format. You can't go to default every time post format is blank.

Maybe you should hook into post-new.php and set the default there, like we talked about.
