      Description

      The generic S3 provider gives the endpoint for the us-standard region. This can confuse users who accidentally use s3 instead of aws-s3 then expect access to other regions. I do not believe that this leaks any credentials or exposes users to replay attacks due to inclusion of the host in the V2 signature, but we should remove this default endpoint to avoid confusion.

      This represents a breaking change to some users; do we need to provide any notice other than release notes?
