Of course they are intended to get copied and pasted. In support you 
often ask
for output from \d tablename. And when I look to the languages that I 
never learned,
especially when I look into Turkish - I would read NULL and not would 
estimate column is
not NULL.

Default and not null are keywords - they are valid sql syntax.
They are constraint definitions.

When I output the table definition I want the constraint definition - I 
don't want to translate it
back to english to understand - ahhhh default is meant.
