Is there a way to set server-wide and database-wide default row formats?

Currently it seems that I must specify ROW_FORMAT in CREATE TABLE or ALTER TABLE statements. Am I reading the documentation right?

In particular, I am interested in having the DYNAMIC row format by default when InnoDB is used.
