What do you mean by "work"?  And what do you mean "without" the obsolete arg?
That argument must be present if you include any arguments to the right of it.

What is considered (by some) to be "obsolete" is to use a non-nil value for the
argument.  That's all.  You cannot simply remove the arg if you include args
such as the DEFAULT-VALUE and INHERIT-INPUT-METHOD.  A nil argument can be
omitted if there are no non-nil args coming after it (i.e., to the right).
