You don't,  just as you wouldn't set the other 23 electronic purses
values to "no" for a shop that only accepts one specific type (to use
the granddaddy of the nonsense, the payment scheme).

I really don't think you can extrapolate from it making sense requiring
to be able to set "no" for individual overall attributes of an object
(say oneway=no) to long lists of goods and services for which in
practical terms nobody is going to enumerate all possible values and set
them to "no" if they are not offered at the facility.
