Making it optional or required does not make much of a difference given
that right now sim setup puts an "allocation" entry into the [default]
section so that if the machine does not define an allocation the
[default] one would be used.

Note that currently simfactory requires that all required entries are
set (either in the [XXX] section for the machine or in [default]) even
for machines that are not used. ie. if allocation is required then the
user is pretty much forced to have one in [default] since otherwise
simfactory will abort (for all commands!) due to some exotic machine to
which the user has no access not having its allocation setting set.
