I concur that web search is inappropriate, but the specification should provide some expectation as to what the default grammar might be.

If you want the default grammar to be of any general use, it would need to support common words & phrases for the current locality.  It need not be as rich as a dedicated dictation grammar or support utterances as long as for diction tasks (though it could be).  But I would expect a 'dictation-lite'.
