(For instance in my test course the problem is defaulting to 2 tries
for all parts when the problem is viewed, and is not aparently
cascading the default 3 across all parts)

Can you try this instead in the maxtries?

<problem><startouttext />Type Question Here.<endouttext />
<responseparam description="maximum tries" default="3" type="integer" name="maxtries" />
<optionresponse max="1" id="11" randomize="yes">
    <foilgroup options="('True','False')">
<foil location="random" value="True" name="Foil1">
<startouttext />This is foil One. It is currently set to "True."<endouttext />
<foil location="random" value="False" name="Foil2">
<startouttext />This is foil Two. It is currently set to "False."<endouttext />
