Yes, I have to concur here -- I don't think we should have
implementations that need completing but are hidden by returning null,
even if it means some things break. Throwing an Error would be much
clearer, and make it obvious where holes in the implementation exist.
Things like this make it appear that we have support that we don't -- I
think a lot of the newer APIs are hidden in this way.
