Hmm, I think it is important to continue to document the case where an 
implementation may return default/generated parameters even if it was 
not explicitly initialized with any. Maybe we don't need the "randomly 
generated" wording, but since that wording has been there for many 
releases, I would be hesitant to remove it.
