I would consider the "homework analogy". I ask my kids to write the name
of each course they have and on the specific day of the week, write the
assignments and their due dates. If they were not assigned anything, they
can write "none assigned". I expect to see "study for test in Thu"
This means that if a user sees something questionable on the screen, then
maybe an affirmation to accept the default settings would be appropriate.
Or if the interface are vastly different from the previous, a special note
to existing users of prior versions would be helpful.
