Nope, defaults are filled in by the client. (And also on the
server if they're still missing; it's part of the common
validation.)

IMHO this is quite unfortunate behavior which may also fail
horribly if there is a newer client and an older server ->
backwards compatibility is on API level, not CLI level. Defaults
should be filled by server, not a client.  We should seriously
reconsider the design of our CLI. But that's for different, future
discussion.

You can't use a newer client with an older server, you get a
VersionError in that case.

Does it break only for this command ?
Or in general.

In general. It's been built into the framework since IPA 2.0 [0]. There
have been four years of development assuming this compatibility scheme.

I should clarify – this is only for the API, i.e. the `ipa` command. Clients of the "ipa-client-install" sort don't use the API.

If a Fedora 21 client can't talk to a RHEL 6 server we have a huge
problem that we need to fix *yesterday*.

Then we have a huge task on our hands.
