Legacy Issue Number: 5771

The core spec says in section 4.11.3:
Typecode creation operations that take name as an argument shall check that
is a valid IDL name or is a null string.
This is oxymoronic: we are talking about IDL here; IDL does not have the
a null string. If anything, we can say "empty string".
Looking at this bit of spec, it would appear that a call such as
is legal. But that doesn't make sense because it's illegal to pass null
across IDL interfaces in C++ (or null references as strings in Java).
