    Yes, it's folded by default. One of the first customizations I did when
    starting to use Org-mode was to change this behavior, since I use more
    documents than outlines.

Is it the case that Org mode applies one single policy to all documents,
and the user can choose which policy that is?

If so, maybe it should not do so.  Maybe the state of folding should be
saved in the file, so that when the file is read in again,
it will be folded or unfolded the same as when it was viewed before.

Or maybe the default should be "Initially totally unfolded".

Or maybe text documents should be distinguished from outlines.
An outline could be initially displayed folded, and a text document
could be initially displayed unfolded.
