I think this is the best advice so far.

An exception would be a PEX home run system with a main manifold, but a normal copper system doesn't have this, so no reason you should require it.

Or am I misunderstanding you?
Yes there is a shut off behind the fridge. But I would have preferred to be able turn it off at the supply end in the event of a problem.
