I think default values might change from time to time, so I do usually prefer to have a full config dump of my devices, just in case I need to recover from an older version of the configuration after an upgrade - but I'm not exactly sure how Forti* handles these kinds of things, so basically, I do not really have a strong opinion on that.

+1 on that, good point.
