Yeah, I agree.  I can try to come up with something more appropriate
than the default-directory. Though I for one, want the *xref* to be part
of that, since "project-find-regexp" uses it. I believe I read you
wouldn't want it. I guess many others will have many different opinions
in this matter.

I see your point, though that seems to imply a little foresight from the
users. Also, I am not sure every emacs users are aware of what modes
inherits from what modes etc. 

In addition, when do we make that first desicion, really? Right now it
just sort of happens after you go "git init" in terminal. To me it
sounds like that new workflow adds some steps to what is right now a
quite seamless experience.
