There were apps designed to default the volume keys to media

They will probably be redesigned to default the volume key to ringer/notification if they want to stay relevant.

Probably wont be until P starts hitting the sammies though

I was surprised about it when I first noticed it in the beta. Then I realized that I adjusted the volume for media far more often than I adjusted ring volume. So, in the end it made sense to me and now I prefer it this way.

I honestly can't think of the last time I adjusted my ringer volume so the new controls make perfect sense for me.

Hit the volume control for a moment, hit the gear and you have all 4 volume controls up on the screen. No more having to remember that the buttons don't change meaning depending on what you're doing.

I do not understand why it is not an option to set which is default. I almost never adjust media volume (because i rarely use media with audio) but i adjust my ringtone several times a day.

If anyone still searching this, try this:
Settings >Sounds and Vibration > Volume, then look at or near the bottom and uncheck 'Use volume keys for media'.
