The shaders right now have three parts basically: compiled binary shaders, json effect files that correspond to the compiled shaders, and the shader chain file that defines the order of the effects (and other stuff) for a shader chain and also has the configuration options.

If you separated out the default options into another file then things would now be in four places. And all four would need to match for things to work. So that doesn't really solve any problems at all.

But more importantly, people need to deal with things the way they are now and not how they'd like them to be. Which means copying the shader chain file if they want to have multiple sets of options saved.
