Are you sure this problem didn't also exist before iOS6? I am experiencing the same annoyance as you (i.e. texting in a rush and accidentally selecting a number that isn't text-compatible) but I don't recall a time where this problem didn't exist...?
It seems like a no-brainer feature for users to be able to set a default SMS contact considering that when there are multiple numbers, usually only one of them is a mobile and the others are either home or work....
