Didn't know that I'm a dictator :)
If you are fine with nothing that would mean you don't care, but seems you do.
It's just that I prefer defining defaults only if they are really
defaults. Like if there would be onboard wireless or if rb532 couldn't
be bought without wifi cards. But by default they were sold without
any wireless cards.
Either way, seems that nobody but me (at least from the list) really
uses these boards, so, I assumed, that my micro-dictatorship would be
acceptable. :)
