Tell me if the issue is too old to deserve comments anymore. But I would like to challenge the conclusion made in this issue.

The message msg9944 stated "Think of the default as the initial list" but it is inconsistent with the proper meaning of default which can be defined as : "a preselected option adopted by a computer program or other mechanism WHEN NO ALTERNATIVE IS SPECIFIED" ( - Oxford Dictionary).

The "initial list" conclusion seems to me more implementation oriented than really user oriented
