The update to allow customizing the default status is great.
However, it doesn't solve the problem where we have multiple business units in a single account and each business unit has their own distinct workflow for their portfolio of products.

What we need is for statuses to be inherited similar to custom fields where a custom status set at a product line is automatically applied to all newly created child products.
