CHILL has that. Or maybe I should say "had" - I don't know if anyone at all are using CHILL nowadays. We (i.e. Norway) used to have half of our land line phones handled by switches programmed in CHILL (ITT System 12 switches) but the land line phone system was closed down last newyear. Now only mobile phones and IP phones are left.

Maybe CHILL is where you take your proposal from. You present a simplified view: CHILL offered both '*' for Don't Care and ELSE for All other values than those mentioned explicitly in other switch alternatives.

CHILL has a few other properties that goes into my language feature wish list. It is a pity that it never caught on as a general language, it is really well designed. But noone worked for it - not even the creators of the language (The initial C is for CCITT, 'CCITT HIgh Level Language'. CCITT changed name to ITU-T many years ago.). They saw it as a good language for programming phone switches, and didn't care to consider the language for any other use.
