      Description

      Creating this ticket as a place for discussion about weird timestamp configurations. Currently within WiredTiger you can timestamp data without ever setting an oldest or stable timestamp, which should created weirdness with rollback to stable on startup / shutdown. However rollback to stable current doesn't do anything if the stable timestamp is unset. I don't think it makes sense to have timestamped data without a stable / oldest timestamp.

      Most of this is follow on discussion from WT-6277's PR. https://github.com/wiredtiger/wiredtiger/pull/5811

      Additionally WT-5720 was created some time ago to document that currently WiredTiger allows you to have an oldest timestamp but no stable timestamp.
