Adding things like paper size is a much more debatable topic.
Considering the number of expected developments in this area, including
the earlier discussion on XeLaTeX/LuaTeX and preamble generation by TEC,
adding the new specific defaults will need to be a subject of extensive
discussion and testing. I do not see much point delaying this patch,
which provides an immediate improvement in the codebase, until we
complete all that.

This alist is rather internal variable representing current defaults. I
am not even sure how it can be useful for third-party packages. It
should not be modified by packages either (defconst).
