  To me it wasn't clear what is the context in which 
the word "default" is required.  Actually, while
writing this response, I am still confused.  By the
the next few lines it appears to be tied to the file 
name extension. Yet, if I write a LINUX command then
what will be taken as a default? Is it that the label 
will be taken as a linux image? Why is a default 
required with a LINUX command?

  I think the documentation should describe accurately
the current actions of the software.
