Many items tend to become standard- one of the latest being a stainless steel sink. Bike rack ready also became standard for 2016 I believe. My 2010 17B had it(batt switch) and don't remember it being an option. Too bad it isn't there though as it couldn't have been more than a $25-50 max item, but most probably didn't know to order it.

I think the battery cutoff switch became standard around mid 2014.

Nope. I thought every trailer had one.

Same here, sometimes if you ask for something they will add it with "N/C".....

Ah, ok. There must have been a changing practice over the years. Ours was standard, but of course that was 2015.

Good point...
before it (apparently) became standard, I think this switch was only included in trailers which had the battery (or batteries) mounted inside the body. With more accessible outside batteries (most or all 19', all 17', and perhaps the smaller models) there is less reason to have the switch - you can open the battery box and remove the negative cable for storage or for service work. The 21', 5.0, and 5.0TA have batteries mounted inside, so presumably all would have the switch, even before it became standard on other models.
