you mean only during the session - not persistent?

If during the session, then +1 from me - persistent: -1 - so please 
don't write anything back to the original SVG file - or keep this for a 
new session. There is a reason why the symbol author can specify default 
values in the SVG files - and that should be honored.

Apropos stroke/outline: let's not forget that in most cases, symbols 
don't use strokes at all. I would say the default case is that symbols 
don't have a stroke - it is more an exception if a symbol has a stroke.
