 I was looking for the same thing today.

 UI wise I think showing a plus sign besides default variants it's the best
 thing as you don't need to scan to the end of the variant description to
 search for "(default)" and it's coherent with the mechanism you use to
 invoke non default variants or negating them.

 That's what I would expect:

 git-core has the variants:
     +doc: Install HTML and plaintext documentation
      svn: Bi-directional subversion repository support
