After trying it out, I'm not sure we want it: there are various places
where we use a non-nil default value, and while it's not ideal, it's not
really clear what would be a better choice.

If there was a simple way to silence those warnings in those cases, it's
would be fine, but I can't think of a simple way to do that.
