Too bad .. I just thought for the sake of orthogonality that {,m] should have been present, with an implied 1 for the missing value. But it sounds like there are equally good arguments for having the implied value be 0 .. so perhaps the decision was made not to implement that grammar at all.

Lesson learned .. thanks for the udpate.
