I wonder why openMSX is defaulting to mirror 16KB ROMs

This allow to launch more games by default.

I beg to disagree. The softwaredb.xml file is what allows more games to be launched by default. (*1)

For unknown/new ROMs, the mirroring just seems to cause confusion.

*1: And even there, there doesn't seem to be any games listed that require mirroring.

For me "by default" means without parameters, therefore without database.
Have you ever programmed a ROM loader? I do it for the MMM. Using mirrors allows to run many more ROMs (99.99%) without specifying any parameters nor database. Whether Roms need mirrors or not is unimportant. This avoids having to do an in-depth analysis of the headers and the Rom content.
