I'm unhappy with the name, then.  "Style defaults" would be
pedantically correct.

OTOH, would it really be that burdensome to keep styles in the
database and allow styles to be updated with appropriate effects on
the lists?  A style *change* that could be applied domain-wide (and
DRY-ly!) without affecting other domains on that host would be a
killer feature.  Or is there another way to accomplish that?
