Proposal for I18n defaults fallback

I have found numerous times that a date field is nil. Probably bad code, but still it crops up. So when i want to use helpers like time_ago_in_words I have to account for nil cases. Like so.

I have a proposal to modify rails/date_helper.rb at main · rails/rails · GitHub to also pass the default I18n option.

This commit Allow default to be passed · dali546/rails@fd45e8c · GitHub

Would it make sense to do that on all the methods in DateHelper?

Do you mean all the DateSelector tags too, all the usages of I18n? Yes it would make sense

So shall I just go ahead and make a PR, or do I need approval first?
