"PDF slides are a special kind of mom document, formatted for viewing
 in a PDF reader’s presentation mode.  In most respects, they behave
 identically to the other document types.  Key differences are:

 - headers, footers, and pagination are disabled by default
 - type is set QUAD CENTER by default
 - flex-spacing and shimming are disabled by default; shimming may be
   re-enabled (with NO_SHIM OFF), but not flex-spacing
 - there’s no need for PRINTSTYLE"

For all other doctypes, yes, definitely assertive. :)

The rational for slides not requiring PRINTSTYLE is that since no
one is going to need typewritten, double-spaced, MLA-formatted
slides, the template is always TYPESET.
