Any such thing like `display-buffer-fallback-alist' has to cope with the
variables `special-display-buffer-names' and `special-display-regexps'
which may prescribe individual behavior based on the names of buffers.
There is no "global" default value for all buffers unless we are
prepared to sacrifice compatibility with Emacs 23.
