Using a schema rule to set a default value on a DependentChoiceList (dcl) field works. However once the parent field is hidden, the child field does not display the correct values. it never finishes loading.

It is expected that when using a schema rule to set a default value on a dcl field to hidden, the child field should complete loading and display the values.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Dependent Choice fields along with their associated tables, views, relationships and application fields
2. Verify that the DCL's populate properly
3. Create a rule to give the parent field a default value, and hide it from view
4. Publish Schema
5. Parent field contains default value and is hidden, but child fields never stop loading or populate

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot use DCL's
