Not at my computer atm but it should work in theory, just give it a try and let us know.

From my understanding, this doesn't work for adding new objects to an existing document. But I believe there is a way to set an initial value for child objects when creating a new document. They way I think about it is, initial value templates are only for documents. Documents can contain objects so you can set an initial value for objects that are part of the document at creation. But not for new objects that are created later.
