No : like relevance equation : empty mean default mean true.

Empty does not communicate intent.

Maybe, but it's integrated soince years currently. And seems clear enough to didn't have any forum post with "Why when it's empty : it's not shown"

For simple user (not dev) : empty string mean «default» seems clear enough.

Why not a "placeholder" to 1 ?
A placeholder is clear enough in my opinion.
