Since the primary issue (negative defenses) is invalid and the secondary issue (manipulation via WML) is reported elsewhere as a primary issue (bug #20242), perhaps it would be best to mark this one as invalid, and leave the other open? (It is easy to overlook the WML issue here.)

Thanks for clarifying that to me.

This is intended. Negative defenses have special meaning and are also used by the feral trait to indicate that this defense value cannot be improved on.

A fix to support WML changes would probably mean reversing modifications on negative defenses, not changing the value there, though an alternate method for indicating such a maximum would be an alternative.

If you look at core/units.cfg, you see that for the movetype mounted, in [defense], you may see forest=-70 . This is somehow read by wesnoth properly (probably some correction code), but causes issues when it is manipulated by any means (apply_to=defense objects will do an opposite, etc).
