U4-8144 - Option to set default selected option(s) on prevalue-based property editors (dropdown, radiobutton list and checkbox list)

Relates to: U4-7660

It would be nice if you had the option to set default selected option(s) or values for property editors, e.g. dropdown, radiobutton list and checkbox list.

For a dropdown it will also prevent the "blank" value - in some cases you want the editor to pick an option anyway.

For radiobutton list and checkbox list it might also be easier to uncheck options instead of check many options each time. It seems that a "default value" fro "True/False" wil be available in Umbraco 7.4.2 http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-7660

For property editors using prevalues like dropdown, radiobutton list, checkbox list, etc. there can be a checkbox for each value (e.g. it can be called "selected"). For dropdown (single) and radiobuttonlist is should only be possible to check one value as "default selected" - maybe it should use radiobuttons in this case.

I would love this - especially for drop-downs!
