"The default behavior is to open the application on the default monitor, and then to manually reposition it to the secondary screen.

In my experience this is not the case. Applications tend to remember where they were positioned. Such applications will open on the non-primary monitor unless they have specific monitor aware code to block this.

OTOH an application that does not record its position will open each time as the first time it opened."
