Description Ms2ger 2013-11-08 08:15:40 UTC
I don't see how it differs from the default.
Comment 1 Boris Zbarsky 2013-11-08 17:45:02 UTC
I agree.  It's also unused.

In fact, I believe [TreatUndefinedAs] as a whole can go.  Specifically, for the values:

"Missing" is obsoleted by making that the default behavior.
"Null" is pointless as this bug says
"EmptyString" can be replaced by just making the argument optional and giving it
   a default value of "".

As I filed a bug for a weak ago, yes...
