If you issue an error and close then it becomes a usability
problem (i.e. it seems too trivial an issue to require shutting
down the system).

If you don't provide an automatic default (i.e. the first
instance available or something like that), then you have
a different usability problem in that you cannot allow your
system to use components designed for "selector" lookup of
components as well as use components designed for "default"
lookup of components.

The whole concept of the "default" attribute is to allow the
developers/config writers some degree of control over the
component assembly.  This is one of Fortress's weak areas.
