That makes sense, and is easy to implement in this case.  We usually
treat the absence of a parameter the same as nil (since Emacs Lisp isn't
Common Lisp), but we don't have to do that here.

True, but I don't think we need to limit the interactivity here, though.
When there's little chance of confusion, having the mode be interactive
isn't that big a deal (and might be useful for somebody, sometime).
