In the spirit of trying to keep our models size-efficient, we encourage model builders to set the summary type to "none" whenever possible in calculation modules (trying to follow the DISCO method here!).
Unfortunately, when a new line item is created, the summary type always defaults to "sum" and it's very easy for model builders to forget to check and/or change that. Going back through after the fact can be tricky and time consuming as we have to carefully check that that changing the summary type of an existing line item won't break downstream calculations. We would like to be able to choose the default summary type so we can set it to "none" in our models. That way, it would force out model builders to change to "sum" only when needed and we would hopefully recognize some good space savings on new development.
