Yesterday I was happy to find that in Mathematica 9 we do have the 
choice to use the old default style or the new default style. The option 
inspector shows that under PrivateNotebookOptions we have a suboption 
"VersionedStylesheet". When that is set to {"Default.nb"[8.] -> True} 
(on notebook level or on global level), the old default style will be 
used. It requires the notebook to be saved and opened again.

When opening an old Mathematica 8 notebook, that has not been affected by the 
beta testing of Mathematica 9, a menu appears for setting this option.

As George Woodrow III has pointed out, the stylesheet map indeed has two 
default stylesheets: Default.nb and Default_8.0.nb. But it seems not to 
be possible to refer to the latter directly; even when we use the old 
stylesheet, according to the style sheet inspector we are using Default.nb.
