Thanks--I had wrongly guessed that you might have been thinking of
cases where initializing to zero would be semantically implausible,
as in 'ihs_dbdict.cpp' here:

void DBDictionary::InitDB()
[initialize everything to zero, before handling special cases]
    // It would be dangerous to set these to zero.
    Add(TDBValue(DB_CCOIMultiplier      , 1.0));
