   Is it possible to provide additional keyword arguments to clim:present methods
   beyond those already specified?  I'd really like to use draw-text* in some of
   my methods and pass in the x and y coordinates and the :align-x and :align-y
   keywords.  Is this possible?  Or desirable?

Yes, this is what the additional 'options' parameter in the
define-presentation-type form is for.  I've defined (x,y) options as
well as several others in many of mine and use the options in present

   Further to this, is there a way to specify the clim:stream-default-view of a 
   pane?  A keyword in clim:define-application-frame would be nice.  Am I missing
   something somewhere?  I'm currently just using setf on clim:stream-default-view
   in my display function.

Other than setting it like you're doing, how else would you like to do
it?  Do you mean a single keyword specified as the default for all
panes of the frame?
