Your note [1] left out one alternative -- "no value is known," or
unspecified.  For example, in C:
         extern char *cstr;
         char *p = (char*)malloc(1 + strlen(cstr) + 1);
         strcpy(&p[1], cstr);
The value of p[0] is indeterminate/unspecified, not necessarily NULL and
not guaranteed to have a default value.

This is (surprise) just like sparse arrays. :)

Did you omit that option on purpose?
