I think it goes further than that Tom, I don't think you should ever take things for granted & relly on the defaults, if you take the time to check through the forms properly each time then you greatly reduce the chance of making any errors.
I do that all the time now, yes been caught out in the past myself with upgrading & the home z position resetting to something like 2 inches
I only have 21/4" clearance under my gantry so with those figures I would top the z axis out on just about every toolpath
