No, not obvious - and for me it works just fine.

I'm using the built-in Microsoft IPSEC stack and L2TP client (XP SP2 and
Win2000 SP4). I use it to make a pseudo-dialup connection over the Internet.
It learns another defaultroute through this - traffic to the local LAN still
stays local, but all other traffic goes via the tunnel. It all Just Works

I am using a Cisco IOS box as the tunnel terminator (my interest in Openswan
is as another client device, not as central terminator). But if you're
saying there's a problem with the Windows client and defaultroute, I'm
saying I don't see this.

At best, that would add a route on the tunnel terminator, not on the client.
