Default Re: Do Melee and Wizard apply when ITL is silent?

The original question in the title, I think is clearly a matter for players/GM to choose. There is no hard rule on this that would apply to every case.

In the specific case, I personally would choose either the Wizard -4 or the Advanced Melee -6.

So, it was intentionally removed from the options list and intentionally not added to the new screen.
My impression is that there was a choice made to use the Melee/Wizard version of the options list for style reasons, with the hope that a more prosaic version would be easier for new players to learn.

I don't think all the implied changes were intentional at all. I'd say most likely this is one case where unintentionally some details were left out.
