If you don't offer an "other" option, you are asking people to tell lies.

My agreement with Michael Kay is extreme to the point i wouldn't want to be responsible for any enumeration that is static or compiled by "me" alone. It's a safe way to failure.

And for those believers going after a fairly complete list of options, in both private and public apps, "other" provides the minimum foundation for evolving a data model down the road, even conceptually.
