No. At least that's not what the ASS spec says:
5. Dialogue event lines, [Events] section
Field 4: Style
Style name. If it is "Default", then your own *Default style
will be subtituted.
However, the Default style used by the script author IS stored
in the script even though SSA ignores it - so if you want to
use it, the information is there - you could even change the
Name in the Style definition line, so that it will appear in
the list of "script" styles.
So we store the Default style of the "authoring software" in the script,
as a reference (or for non-compilant software) but the player should
ignore it and use its own default style.

Yes,and that's exactly how the generated ASS should be rendered too.

I'm pretty certain this would break some renderer.
