>From my previous message:

   While it does seem possible to get the default value by specifying a
   generic character, there is a strange subtle asymmetry between
   _setting_ the default value for, say, ipa, and setting the
   corresponding generic character (6272 in this case).

   Setting the default value using `set-char-table-default' does _not_
   override non-nil pre-existing values in the charset _except_ for the
   generic character itself.  Setting the generic character itself
   overrides the entire charset.  Is this intentional?  If yes, I will
   clearly document it (because it is confusing).

On second thought, this _must_ be intentional, otherwise the function
set-char-table-default would be completely unnecessary.  I will just
document the fact.
