OK, I have probably misworded the question. Let's say I have a record
defining fields "a" and "b". For simplicity, their permissible values
are ints.

As I understand it:

{ "a": 1 }

is not legal since "b" is not provided.


{ "a": 1, "b": 2, "c": 3 }

is not legal either since "c" is not defined.

BUT: { "a": 1 } can be legal IF a default value is provided for "b".

Am I getting this right, partially right, completely wrong?
