That's exactly the way it is now. There is no overall 'sane' default,
since the default is always connected to wmiirc: If one has bindings
for [1-9] tagging in wmiirc, '1' is a sane default, if one has
bindings for [a-z] tagging in wmiirc, 'a' is a sane default. Hence,
the only sane default is one that isn't connected to any specific
configuration at all, such as "nil", "null" or "fallback".
Currently, when /def/rules is written, rules are applied to all
clients that have the "nil" tag, or no tag at all (assentially
resetting "nil" to whatever your default tag in the rules is).

Greetings, Sander.
