I've seen others use this to set a variable to a default if it is not already
set, so there's nothing wrong with the approach you are taking.
However, I think it is also true that having some kind of default config which
lists all values, and then reading a user-changed file containing only the
things which the user has changed works quite well. It's also nice when a
program can (re)generate the "default" defaults (eg "postconf -d")...
