In contrast, if we don't know whether the Binomial outcome is present, we use the classical construction. For example, if performing a survey to find bugs in computer code it is possible that the code doesn't have bugs. In this case, the classical construction is a more honest option, and will avoid introducing unintended biases from a bayesian prior.  

Although the other priors are used elsewhere, we find them difficult to justify so we favor the options above.
