I don't put estimates on my tickets, as I usually have no clue how long they will take. When I log work (by typing 'w'), I put my time into the Worked field, and because there is no estimate, this auto-fills "Remaining estimate" with "N/A". If I try to submit that, it tells me "Remaining estimate is invalid." I have to change "Remaining estimate" to 0 to submit the work log. I don't think a field should ever be auto-filled with an invalid value. Wouldn't a default of 0 be more appropriate?
Remaining estimate becomes "N/A" when there is no original estimate on the story. That is a way of forcing the user to put a valid remaining estimate I guess.
Defaulting to 0 will make it a lot easier for people to ignore the estimates field and that is probably why that is not done.
