Visual Flow picklists are always required and never required - odd UI behavior!

User Experience

Issue #1 : In Visual Flow the picklist element is always marked as a required input on Flow input screens.
Issue #2 : Picklist in Flow input screens have to have a default value, there is no "blank" or "null" value which means that if you really want your pick list required it can't be because there is always a default value.
Issue #3 : You can't write a custom validation on a picklist input. Which means even if you created a "None" value as the default (see above) you can't custom validate that none should throw an exception.

If you could fix either #3 or #2 that would be awesome. And while there, make it so that the requiredness of a picklist is optional.

Awesome! Thanks!
