Yes, I think that makes sense. I'm defining this in JEP-0060 right now 
so defaulting to open might make sense (though we might want to leave 
this up to the implementation or deploy), but allowing other profiles 
(mainly SPPS at this point) to default to presence or whatever would be 
good. In any case I think presence is the right default for SPPS.
