The importance of 'null' in relation to SQL data sets is something that

It seems pretty trivial to me: SQL distinguishes between the string ''
and null, and so does PHP. If you pass a PHP null to a query, PHP should
do as you say and send an SQL null, and the DB can give an appropriate
error if null is not allowed in that context.
