Right. I tried to indicate this typographically by using italics for
the word "None" meaning there isn't a default. Contrast this with the
default value for 'class' on trademark where the default value is
shown in an upright, constant width font (and quotes).

                                        Be seeing you,

P.S. Yes, the fact that 'class' is defaulted on trademark is a bug
that will be fixed eventually.
