Yes, sorry but mainly wanted to make more obvious default resources
are not defined enough today and that some more work on this topic
would be very welcomed.

Maybe I didn't get it right but your message is mainly about product
specific features in which case vendors should handle it and not the
spec since features are already out the spec. Said otherwise if the
spec allows to influence vendors features then this should be spec
features. Having auto-adjusting resources or default resources is
mainly the same in term of behavior so not sure spec should go further
regading it.
