Not key, but keyref, for a change.

Seems to me we missed a case:  if the node picked out by a keyref's
field is xsi:null='true', then this should be treated as if the node
had not been found.  As the PWD reads, it will just use an empty
string as that field's contribution to the key sequence to be looked
up.

Ditto for unique fields.
