First of all you showed the original form in _some_ way so you could store
that information with the user data.

Or you could store a list of all the field names, or just the ones that were
left empty.

You could store the fields in a user node type, that has a "value" sub node,
not only could your application decide that a non-existing "value" node is
the same as "null", but you could add a whole bunch of extra information if
necessary (maybe the field was not editable but had a default value so you
want to remember that the value was not entered by the user).

You could probably find lots more ways to model this.
