Couple of questions:

- When we set default to empty string (<value></value>), will it be a
  NULL or an empty string ("")?

- Would this distinction continue to exist for values with an empty
  string where we have <value><comment></comment></value>?

- Do we need to maintain such difference (unallocated vs empty string)
  if one exists for any parameter?

I'm currently not being able to push due to travelling, please push.
