I believe the best is to bring the sources to the Apache ODF Toolkit,
where I already found the XSLT to extract default values from a single
file [1]. By doing so we have all sources at a single place, which is
important when fixes would be applied and developers wouldn't search for
development sources in the OASIS rep. It is only tooling around the spec

AFAIK ODF does not specify a default value for every optional attribute.
I agree that this is problematic in terms of interoperability.
Do you have some examples?

PS: The editorial problems regarding default value once mentioned [2]
seem to be fixed in the ODF 1.2 specification.
