What should be the behavior associated with allowedCharacter when its value is an empty string?

My question comes from trying to map ITS and XLIFF. In XLIFF there is an attribute that might be used for allowedCharacters, but it has this provision:  "A blank value indicates there is no limitation."

Since we don't define anything for a blank allowedCharacters, I assume it means the blank pattern is evaluated and can't possibly match any character, so it means none is allowed. (which is a strange case).

Is it the proper interpretation?

BTW: I'm not trying to force a mapping to XLIFF charclass, just trying to precise a bit more the ITS expected behavior to see if it matches or not.
