I am looking forward for the result. 
The value "nochange" sounds good. I think it would be better to use this
value instead of "default" or "no". It leaves no doubt about, what the
parser does. Whereas the value "default" could be misunderstood in "let
the parser do what he defaults to", which can also mean "convert it in a
particular case".

Unfortunately there is a lot more stuff, that is being assumed falsely
by the people who create web-sites ;-)

Thank you for informing. I am anxious about what comes out. 

Happy Coding!
