Just to be clear, you can always get away from explicit constructor use with a combination of map and getOrElse. The question is whether or not there exists a suitable specialisation for your use-case. Without looking, and for Option, the answer is almost always yes. If you can be specific for the use-case we may be able to critique it.

Hoping to finish the chapter on monoids today.
