> The self-serve app does not allow empty attributes to be populated.
> This is because of lines 258/259 in [1], where the field is set to disabled if the attribute
is not present in the values for the current record.
> A simple fix is to remove the lines.
> However, this then causes a problem, because empty fields are pre-populated with the
value "<not present>", which will get written to the attribute if the user does not
clear the fields first. This would be tedious and error-prone.
> Dropping the "<not present>" value does not work either, because the field is currently
only rendered if there is a value for it.
> The changedetails.html template needs to show at least one field for every supported
attribute whether it has an actual value or not.  
> For writable fields, one could use a field placeholder attribute [2] to show the "<not
present>" text. This would also be suitable for read-only fields.
> Whatever approach is taken, there needs to be a way to test the changes.
> Is there a test installation of the SelfServe app that can be used to check that the
page renders OK?
