They handle things differently.  For instance, the code of
ofximporterplugin.cpp does not contain any mention of "brokerage".  When I last
looked at this, I came to the conclusion that in OFX parlance, brokerage refers
to the broker supplying the file, and it has no knowledge of KMM innards, such
as default brokerage accounts.

When I first looked at this, it seemed more or less identical to your previous
QIF snippet, so I was quite surprised when I imported it and it gave different
results.  That is, the imported transaction was missing the brokerage account. 
I didn't think it relevant, but the "!Account" entry was the cause.  When I
removed it, I was prompted to supply the account for the import.  I then
realised that previously your import had worked because I had selected an
account tha had an existing brokerage account.  The "!Account" entry was
creating a new account, which would not have a brokerage account. So, I had
misled myself, and you, into thinking your problem had been fixed.  It has not.

The reason is that the existing code will only create a new brokerage account
if the transaction either has an "X" suffix to the action code, or a transfer
account name in [] .

This area of code is long eastablished, and it seems, if I understand you
correctly, the problem is the result of recent Quicken versions moving the
goalposts away from their long-established "standard".

@Thomas. Thomas, what is your view on how this issue should be resolved?  Do we
commit to following Quicken, where-ever it chooses to go?

To be able to investigate the OFX issue, I will need a file that demonstrates
the problem.  Comparing with QIF is useless, I'm afraid.  However, from what I
said above, OFX has no awareness of KMM's file structure.
