There are already many possibilities with some shell scripting (even on
a Mac) :

echo "Starting the right Pd v-model"

/Applications/Pd-extended.app/Contents/Resources/bin/pd -nomidi -noaudio -open v-right-model.pd -send "preset-file ../video-presets/right.coll;" &

echo "Starting the left Pd v-model";

/Applications/Pd-extended.app/Contents/Resources/bin/pd -stderr -nomidi -noaudio -open v-left-model.pd -send "preset-file ../video-presets/left.coll;" & 

But i agree a specific -preffile option would be great.
