    I would prefer :wait that defaults to t.  Is shorter and avoids the

A default that isn't nil, when nil cannot stand for use of the
default, is problematical.

    Hmm... this looks a bit strange.  Can you give some examples?
    Especially, what do you supply as VALUE?

That usage seems like a kludge to me.  What exactly is it trying to
