Sink or No Sink in Kitchen Island?


The house I am building has an island in the kitchen. It is a small island, four feet long by two feet wide (cabinet width) with a one foot overhand for a couple of stools. I had the island plumbed under the slab for a sink. (Of course there is also an electical outlet on the island.) I'm looking at the snap lines for the location of the island. It looks pretty small. I'm thinking maybe the island is too small for a bar-sized sink.
Here are my questions:
Can I just not put a sink in the island afterall? I would just leave the plumbing hidden in the cabinet in case I want plumbing in the future. Would the water in the lines become stagnate and cause problems in the plumbing in other areas? I don't know if this matters or not, but I did put a recirculating hot water system in the house for instant hot water.

There should be no problem with the plan your asking about.

So, what you are saying is that it is okay to cap off the plumbing and leave it hidden in the cabinet and NOT put the sink in the kitchen island...
Does it matter that the water lines aren't copper? They are that white plastic-looking stuff.
I want to make sure we are talking about the "same" plan.
When it comes to this kind of stuff, I want to make sure I not misunderstanding. I do some pretty goofy stuff sometimes.

THANK YOU, Ron the Plumber, for getting back to me!!! I really do appreciate your expertise and time!
