Github user mattf-horton commented on the issue:

    https://github.com/apache/incubator-metron/pull/414
  
    A further comment on multiple optional parameters:  C++ allows multiple optional (defaulted)
arguments, and does not support named arguments.  The rule "if a later optional arg is provided,
all preceding optional args must also be provided, even if with trivial values", is exactly
what C++ does. It is also consistent with what Python does when multiple defaulted arguments
are provided positionally instead of as "named arguments" -- altho of course in Python one
probably would use the named args instead.
