Any suggestions on better wording would be considered.

Because selecting the "Horde Default" means that whenever you change  
the default identity in the Personal Information preferences, this  
newly selected default identity would then be honored in those other  
applications as well. If we just set that value to whatever the  
currently selected default is, then the user would have to revisit all  
the other applications and change the value in those as well.

Yes, the drop down could be modified, but the actual preference value  
in use would still be the previously selected one until the user  
changed it.
