Default Offset Rotation for assembly mates

I greatly appreciate being able to reorient mate connections in assemblies without having to edit individual mate connectors, but have found that practically every time I need to reorient something like a fastened or slider, it needs to be rotated about the Z axis, rather than its local X or Y. Personally i would find it a timesave if the default rotation was around Z instead of X.

    Indeed, I always want to rotate around the Z-axis.
    Please make Z-axis the default!

    @imants_smidchens This will fall into the category to remember your last settings which we have on the plan.
