It looks like the correct fix was already applied, but just to chime in here:

(1) Yes, the error is that the isinstance(action.default, str) check was lost

(2) Yes, it is intended that you can use a string value as your default and the type= converter will be called on that. This feature allows DRY for people that have a complex object that can be specified by a simple string.

(3) Yes, the type= converter function should be applied to the default for all action types, not just for the store action.
