Normally a server can't set config true leafs if there is no default available in the model.  That is the reason we reached out to NETMOD.  Your suggestions can work but require adaptation of the current model.

I agree that mandatory leafs can be subtle and I agree that this is a
great topic for a guidelines document. Perhaps you can draft some
concrete text that could be considered to be added to section 4.17.
There is text in section 4.19.2 which addresses a similar situation
with mandatory augments and perhaps we should have a similar
discussion in a new section 4.17.1.
