I use Qjackctl to control Jack, and in the Setup->Options I put:
     pacmd set-default-sink jack_out
in the box labelled: 'Execute script on startup'.
So that's basically duplicating the effect.

I don't tend to do much plug-n-play, so I don't know what effect that 
would have on the setup.
I do know that Jack seems to lock onto the device specified in 
Setup->Settings->Advanced->Output Device
which is a bind on my laptop as most of the time I have it set to the 
headphones socket, and it
doesn't switch to the internal speakers if I unplug it. I think ALSA 
used to do that automatically.
I don't think much of the built-in speakers anyway and plug in a 
mini-boombar if I'm away from
my desk.
