It's not clear which decision you are referring to. I was speaking of the
decision to deprecate INITIAL-VALUE insertion (in favor of using only DEF).
It sounds like you're arguing for preselection of an initial value.

IOW, there are two questions:

1. Can INIT-VALUE be reinstated as a legitimate (i.e. not disrecommended)
2. Can preselection of an initial value be provided (e.g. as an option)?
I was arguing for considering 1+2 after the release. A little bit more actually since I also thought we might consider how to handle widget fields.
