Thanks for your input, thats correct that these are temporary defaults - examples really. 

I imagine this kind of issue may arise more in the future as I'm seeing a lot more theme authors add temporary defaults to theme options for preview / demo purposes when doing reviews.

Wanted to raise this issue to make sure I'm not breaking any rules and open discussion on this topic.
