By default, if you don't supply --rules, --enabled, or --disabled, you
are targeting all enabled IPA rules (case 1 above). This is default
because this is what people would probably like to test: whether user is
able to access the service.

So, default one (no --rules, --enabled, or disabled) would imply --enabled.

May be "Show which rules are passed, denied, and invalid"?
