Summary0000875: If there is a rule for deciding the concealed possessions, all possessions default to concealed
DescriptionIf you write a rule for the deciding the concealed possessions of an NPC and omit "otherwise no" at the end, all the NPC's possessions that are not covered by the rule will be concealed.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
The Gym is a room.

Bob is a person in the gym. Bob carries a dumbbell. Bob carries a bottle.

Rule for deciding the concealed possessions of Bob: if the particular possession is the bottle, yes [or 
Test me with "x dumbbell".
Additional InformationThe behavior is the same whether the rule for the bottle says "yes" or "no."

The documentation is confusing here; 17.9 says the default behavior is none of the possessions to be concealed, which of course is the behavior if no rules for deciding concealed possessions are written; but it's natural to interpret as meaning that if a rule is given but makes no ruling on a given possession, that it will not be concealed.

Only the most specific applicable for rule should be considered (WI 17.3, point 2), so the behavior looks right to me. But because WI 17.9 doesn't mention what happens if no decision is made, nor does WI 17.34 in regards to deciding whether all includes, I've recategorized the report as a documentation bug and confirmed.
