Note that using defaults to write to arbitrary plist files using a path has been deprecated for some time (since at least 10.3), with a warning in the manpage, and there have been recent rumblings that Apple intends to follow through on its promise to break that feature.

PlistBuddy is a supported command-line tool for manipulating arbitrary plists (alas, with a more complex syntax, IMO).
