This sounds good.  I don't quite understand the constraints we're
operating under with respect to making existing clients / servers
non-conformant, but I trust you've done that analysis correctly.

With regards to the 'null' value, we should try to pick a value that's
friendly to regular expressions (i.e., avoids . / [ and similar
characters) because many web application firewalls (who would use this
value) express their rules in terms of regular expressions.
