IMO, having per-driver defaults is important. SDBC drivers that know which
database they connect to (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL, as opposed to e.g. ODBC,
JDBC, ADO) should just set the right values by default silently, and not even
give the user UI to change them to known non-working values.

In the context of DBMS-specific drivers, on the other hand, when the default is
wrong, it allows changing the default, and fixing the connection in newer
LibreOffice versions. Else, we fix it only for files created in the new
LibreOffice version.
