accessing default values in classes

   I would like to find out whether there is a defined way of accessing the
   default values in classes. The accessors seem to work only with instances
   for me.

Isn't this what class-prototype is for?  It seems to me that
    (class-prototype some-class-object)
returns something that looks like a "default" instance of the class in
question.  You can then access it as a normal instance.  I have
several times used this to get at class-allocation slots when I didn't
have ready access to an instance of the class.
