No, I assume no such thing.

You still skirt a reasoning for it to be so.  They don't need to be but
why aren't they?  You've failed to answer the question by assuming I
need to be educated on how it is and refusing to give me a reason of why
it is. I know that I can specify something other than the default.  I
don't know why the default is not the same as the chosen.  You keep
failing to answer that question.  Why does it *need* to stay -unknown-
instead of -pc-?
