I agree that <optional> is a reasonable spelling.
I initially suggested <optional>, but now I'm not sure because it doesn't indicate what happens when you don't provide it (as in, what is the default value). So now I'm with <derived> or <implicit>.
"<derived>" makes think of a derived class, and leaves me confused. "<implicit>" is a bit better, but doesn't clearly say what the default value is, either. So in all cases I have to read the docstring in addition to the function signature.
Is <default> the term you're looking for?
