I actually prefer the " [...]" syntax over "(default ...)" too[*], but I
think it's more important for Emacs to be consistent.  I don't think it
should be just "Whatever the prompt author happened to like."

[*] I suppose I could see an argument that explicitly saying "default"
    helps extreme newbies, though -- at least those that know English.
