We were very focused on making the High-level Specification as
succinct as possible, omitting some API details that are not important
for understanding the semantics.

"name" argument is not optional and will be required.  If it's
optional, people will not provide it, making it very hard to
introspect the context when we want it.

I guess we'll just update the High-level Specification section to use
the correct signature of "new_context_var".
