Thanks for your feedback Paul! I agree your proposed implementation strategy would probably be saner; I'll revise the patch to use that approach or something like it.

As for the question of necessity, there are definitely more cases than just the store_false ones -- I documented these in the linked Certbot bug but very briefly they include:

* Programs where the default value of a variable is "Ask interactively" if no flag is provided
* Cases where the default value is the result of some complicated computation (for instance, reading it from a defaults file)
