Currently, there are {option} and {text}
Code:
[mybbcode]aaa[/mybbcode]
{text}: aaa
{option}: (empty)

[mybbcode=bbb]aaa[/mybbcode]
{text}: aaa
{option}: bbb

I suggest adding a third placeholder that has the option value "if" an option is given, else the text value
Code:
[mybbcode]aaa[/mybbcode]
{text}: aaa
{option}: (empty)
{optionortext}: aaa

[mybbcode=bbb]aaa[/mybbcode]
{text}: aaa
{option}: bbb
{optionortext}: bbb

Currently a full plugin would be required for getting one or the other value. And it's a pretty small change (I think)...

I'm not sure I follow that, but I don't think it is worth doing seeing that I can't tell what purpose it would actually serve. I see 2 values in both your examples so no matter what at best you describe adding an option for no reason.

Why not just use a callback?

Maybe if you can give a real world use example instead of aaa and bbb which mean nothing nor show why I need two fields to have the same value.
