This is one of the curly issues. I personally can’t imagine the tedium of having to set a default property for half the properties of every object. My solution is to dispatch a message to each object so that it can sort itself out for saving. Stacks can resize themselves causing resizeStack handlers to trigger etc.. however, this does introduce a workflow issue which I then resolved by doing the VCS export from a command lime app that is run whenever the stackFile is saved. It works relatively well and as it’s asynchronous there’s no waiting around for the save.
