When I create a permission using the registerUserPermissions hook I would like everyone, in all user groups have access to that permission. An admin has to take an explicit step to restrict access to that pemission. Something like this:

 * @return array
public function registerUserPermissions()
    return array(
        'my-permission' => array(
            'label' => Craft::t('Edit Settings'),
            //****ENABLE BY DEFAULT****
            'enable'=> true

There's not a native way to do this, but you might want to consider adding it as a feature request.

In the meantime, you might be able to work around it a bit with some custom JS in the control panel and using something like the Control Panel JS plugin.
