It might be clearer to say
If `auto-resize' is specified as true value, then...
but the convention throughout the documentation is that optional
arguments have defaults, and the prose assumes a default if no explicit
value is provided for the argument. Defaults are shown in the blue box
alongside contracts, and the blue box for the `message%' constructor,
auto-resize : any/c = #f
indicating that `auto-resize' is #f by default.
