The first two we already do.  The third one seems a bit obscure to me 
and hard to decide when to do it.  Maybe if Tab is never pressed but I 
think that it will confuse people if that is the default behavior.

An alternative is just to have a preference to turn off removal of 
unaltered defaults and maybe add a refactoring operation that removes 
unaltered defaults from any invocation so that can still be done when
