Could we have some Consensus on return values for your JSON objects? Mixing empty strings and null values is just bad for the same "type"




Pick one and run with it, then at least we know that we will consistently get the same for all field types instead of a mish mash of null and empty strings. Then we can develop our apps knowing what to expect. e.g. if its a string: "", array: [], object:{}, date/numeric:null, boolean: true/false.  I mean we were there and "suddenly" as of Jan 31 things changed, values changed and behavior changed.. I somehow doubt that this was mentioned in the changelogs.


It's not too much to ask for is it?
