Sam thinks it should still be required so it can be relied upon, otherwise it's cumbersome to have to check whether it's the default value or if it exists; Dave clarifies that if it's not the default value then it could be cancelling.

I’m pending being persuaded that the PR is right, rather than the original issue being a typo, BTW. -1 unless someone manages that (or similar).
