Nice mod!

Would be great if the default settings could also appy to the separate Teaser block (e.g., Excerpt module). In a perfect world, the Teaser could be set uniquely (diff from Body), but would be acceptable for it to follow the specification of the Body field.

Drupal 6 already provides that functionality in core and it works as described.

Afraid not -- on both counts. Observe in the attached screenshot. The Teaser form field (top one), shows WYSIWYG controls -- using the Input Filters default. Whereas, the Body form field (bottom one), shows _no_ WYSIWYG controls and a modified label for input filter -- a result of Better Formats default settings.

Your setup is being modified by some other code then. Drupal 6 core even with the wysiwyg module installed allows for a different teaser and body by unchecking the checkbox above the body field.

@dragonwize: you are right, but I think you got it wrong. There is an issue, which greta_drupal was trying to point out. If we use a completely separate teaser field e.g. Excerpt module (like she mentioned too), the default settings by this module don't apply. This can be fixed with a custom module, but would be better if Better Formats would support Excerpt. See the attached patch.

Other modules will be able to take advantage of BF in 3.x.

That is awesome, but why this could not get in until then? I think 3.x is very far yet and this has not major impact which would need new API system.

Actually it does need a new API to give the requested customization that has been requested for other modules. If you want to have an except and still use BF I would suggest using either Drupal core's summary/teaser functionality or use a CCK text field instead of the Excerpt module which will achieve the same thing and works with BF already.
