Sorry for the late reply. You are right, I need to put in error messages
for this. Here is what is happening.
PETSc tries to fallback if you do not have certain packages. In this case,
you are not using DMForest,
which responds to both coarsen and refine, so the
mesh generator interprets all markers as refine (they
cannot coarsen). I will add a check that fails on the coarsen marker.

Coarsening is much more difficult in the presence of boundaries, which is
why it is not implemented in
most packages. For unstructured coarsening, I do not think there is any
choice but MMG.

What most experimenters take for granted before they begin their
experiments is infinitely more interesting than any results to which their
experiments lead.
