> Currently the configuration class does not allow null keys and values. Null keys don't
make sense, but null values may have semantic meaning for some features. Not storing these
values in configuration causes some arguable side effects. For instance, if a value is defined
in defaults, but wants to be disabled in site configuration by setting it to null, there's
no way to do this currently. Also, no track of keys with null values is recorded. Hence, tools
like dump configuration (HADOOP-6184) would not display these properties.
> Does this seem like a sensible use case ?
