I've been told that some undergrad students at Harvard (I must assume the same can occur elsewhere) use the term 'Ablative of Default', when dealing with instances of Ablative that were not so easily recognizable. I can see how this can happen, well into the second hour of the class when all Ablatives are beginning to look alike :) Still, I would not recommend using this as a legitimate answer on a test.
