But this seems to work only for the first column created, all
subsequently created columns (e.g. via colrules) will render clients in
the default mode, which is tiled.

Is there already a way to set the default mode for newly created

If not generated 'CreateColumn' and 'DestroyColumn' events similar to
the 'CreateTag' and 'DestroyTag' events could be used to achieve the
desired behaviour.
As an example the attached patch sets the mode on every newly created
column to stack.
