Sorry I wasn't clear enough, that's not what I suggested. The idea is to 
add a setThrowExceptionOnMissingProperties(boolean) method to change the 
behavior, it would be false by default.

Not every getter return null if the property doesn't exist, getList() 
returns an empty list and getStringArray() returns en empty array. It's 
more useful than a null value imho.
