I believe it is, indirectly: The default settings should be suitable
for the most common editing situations. It's reasonable to assume that
a commonly accepted standard (which is the case with ANSI C) describe
the common ground between implementations. Hence the standard is a
very good source when finding out what the most common editing
situations are.
