The problem is what to infer out of a NULL, In some instances it should be Zero, like in my account balance example. In other instances it should be non-zero like in exit status. In other instances it should be non-existant/excluded from a list such as your example of a sting of numbers similar to monitoring something like cpu load.

Zero and Null are not completely different. If I look at the balance of money I have in a bank I do not use it is both Null and Zero. Where I've come into issue with this is when looking at exit status if you transform Null to Zero it becomes success rather than what would often be expected as failure.
