With Orchard as is, can I specify a default value / default content for a text field on a content part/type?

Or is this another case of "go and build it yourself"?

I don't think you can with Orchard "as is". Personally, I can't recall seeing such a requirement before, so I'd say this is uncommon enough to not be a feature that comes out of the box. What's nice though is that it's easy to build yourself.
