Comment (by TimothyBlynJacobs):

 Looking at the `$object_id` and `$single` parameters, while they are
 listed as optional in the function signature, they don't actually seem to
 be optional to me.

 The `$object_id` parameter is needed to retrieve the subtype for an
 object. So omitting it wouldn't allow you to get the correct value for any
 of the built-in types.

 The `$single` parameter defaults to `false`, but it isn't actually

 So it seems like we could safely make all those parameters optional and
 then match the order of the other functions.
