I'd like to see a fix for this key-only problem if you fix it.

If you hack in support for DEFAULT, make sure to use the database 
capability system, since DEFAULT isn't supported by lots of databases.

You may also want to consider using the new $DBDPG_DEFAULT variable and 
keeping the placeholders, instead of writing custom SQL. Recent versions 
of DBD::Pg support this variable, which Greg Sabino Mullane (DBD::Pg 
maintainer) explained here:
