code is -- we do not need an initialized instance (with the def. or any
other cnstr) but a place-holder only that we'll initialize ourselves via

IMHO it is certainly a reasonable use-case. That is, in fact, why I think it
should be saying what it is doing. In general terms, for some other class a
def. cnstr might be expensive or even unavailable. That should not be
stopping us from applying the use-case.

Just my view as always.
