Github user uce commented on the issue:

    I agree with both of your points, but I'm slightly leaning towards the side of consistent
behaviour since this behaviour is not special for queryable state per se. It's just implementing
the current contract of the state interfaces, which still allow for a default value. Once
we remove that from the state interfaces, queryable state should also not expose it anymore,
since queryable state is registered within the program.
    In the end I'm fine with both approaches and it's up to you both to decide. :wink:
    PS Note that `null` is not returned in case of a query to a non-existent value for a key/namespace,
but the `UnknownKeyOrNamespace` exception fails the queries `Future` instance.
