is there anyway to set default tab view in lightning (e.g. account detail instead of related)

It seems bizarre that in lightning when you open Accounts, Leads or contacts the default is not to open in the details tab but in another less useful one.  Is there any way of changing this default?  

We moved to Lightnng to help encourage users by making it simpler and more obvious.  This strange default makes it less obvious.

Save and activate if not already and this should set the default tab. 

I am anxiously awaiting this to be available for sandbox and production use.

This can be accomplished in production now:

From the seettings menu, choose Edit Page:

Edit the Account Record page

Change the Default Tab to Details and Save.
Use Activation... to determine whether to apply the change to the entire organization, or more locally, such as to a particular user Profile:

Activation of the Page can be specific from the organization level down to individual profiles
