I think we should start from an implicit pet=no.  Simply because pet=yes
includes my pet
elephant, your pet boa constrictor and his pet lion and so we're usually
going to have
pet=no with an exception list.  So we might as well say that pet=no is
implicitly assumed
if an exception list is present.  Or pet=no is the default unless
explicitly over-ridden by
either pet=yes or an exception list.  And if it's the default assumption if
there is no
exception list or pet=yes then there no reason to tag it explicitly (you
can if you want, but it's
not necessary).

I also think pet=yes ought not be used and we need something like
except that is ugly.  I can't think of a better value, though.
