this one is based on the community thread here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Component-Framework/Default-values-for-quot-input-quot...
It might be useful to have the ability to define default values for the PCF control "input" properties AND to show those defaults in the form designer when adding the control.
I am guessing default values could either be added through the manifest file:
<property name="test" display-name-key="test" description-key="test" of-type="SingleLine.Text" usage="input" required="false" default="default value" />
Or from the code...
And those default values should also show up in the form designer whenever somebody is setting up a custom control for an attribute on the form (so it would be obvious what the defaults are)
