Comment (by Carlton Gibson):

 I haven't yet seen a reason not to re-use `empty_value_display` here
 (rather than add a new admin option) but we need to consider when that is
 applied:

 > There are some cases where I really do want an empty string displayed
 (though not in a linked column). Maybe only use it only when it's an auto-
 linked field/column? Or maybe only use this behavior in
 display_for_field()? (So if you use a custom function/method, you can
 still have full control.) — [https://groups.google.com/d/topic/django-
