Sam, I think there are lots of areas of the code that rely upon this (IMHO, bug) working as
it does. If you deem it is a bug, please give us a headsup if you change things, and I'll
help root out those places.

Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: GUMP-22
    Summary: XML objects return 'existence' for attributes, that don't exist
       Type: Bug

     Status: Open
   Priority: Major

    Project: Gump

   Assignee: Sam Ruby
   Reporter: Adam Jack

For the XML objects (that merge the metadata) the following:

   value = x1.y() or x2.y()

can set value to be None even if x2.y() yields a value. This is likely some bug in the attribute
overrides implemented by these complex Python objects. 

Assuming this is fixable, there are *significant* risks of knock on bugs as a lot of workaround
code exists. The fix must include unit tests, a lot of test runs, and cleaning up the workarounds.
