My position has changed based on this explanation - I no longer support 
the move from NULL to {}.

I think both approaches have downsides. That is, NULL required a fairly 
lengthy explanation by Dave to demonstrate why it is consistent. Ted's 
point still stands - folks may be confused by getting back NULL instead 
of {}. I'm leaning more toward NULL because it is consistent and we can 
explain why it is consistent in the spec.

Ted, what do you think?
