Why are the default settings so lame?

Why are all the default text settings light gray?

Light gray does not contrast with anything!  Against a light background, you can’t read it.  Against a dark background, you can’t read it.

Why is Tahoma (and sometimes Times Roman) the default?  Make it Arial … make it darkest black … and make it bold.

While I love all the capabilities of this software, I spend so much time monkeying around with the appearance because all the default settings are very lame.  And changing those settings to an acceptable default is a very time consuming process that does not carry over from project to project.  It would take a project budget just to try and get the default settings of this software acceptable, due to the non-intuitive and time intensive process it takes to adjust the object settings, which is not an option on time/budget constrained projects.
