That's pretty much my attitude.

One place that's essentially always the ternary operator (for me) is testing for incoming arguments in a php file
PHP
$aVal = isset($_REQUEST['val']) ))?isset($_REQUEST['val']:some_default;
There could be a flock of these, one after the other, to handle potential incoming values so (at least) I don't get undefined errors.

Further handling of default may occur later on (like not use the value). Because it's always the way I do the checking for this particular file type it falls back to being easy reading. Within the body it's not, however, the default way of doing it.
