We can definitely have safe defaults that work for a given
driver/hardware. I don't think the same defaults would be safe for all
drivers/hardware: The timing strategies of different I2C hardware seems
to vary widely (which edges of the clock are sampled, how does different
hardware deal with hold times etc) and depending on which parameters are
available to the driver to control these timings, the safe values would
either have to be the minimum or the maximum in the range allowed by the
I2C specification.
Every driver would thus have to implement its own defaults in case the
properties are not defined.
