I guess it depends on what you want to do in default.el.  I've just always
found it harder as a user when I was given a place (such as .emacs) where
I had to take into account future changes (as in: set toto here so that
later code in default.el will change foo to bar) as opposed to being
provided a state (setup by site-start.el) and being able to change it
directly without havnig to know or worry about what might come later.

But without more concrete details, it's difficult to discuss this.
