Summary: If the default value of a system message is the empty
                    string, treated as a non-existant page in mediawiki
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.17
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Internationalization

New in 1.17! but not really a blocker or otherwise important.

When viewing the uncustomized (aka non-created) page in mediawiki namespace for
a message that defaults to the empty string, its treated as if there is no such

to reproduce:
*Go to:
(as a normal user without editinterface rights)
This is a message that uses the default, and that default is ''.
*Behaviour seen: no text box to view source. Treated as if there is no such
message. Additionally, links to that page are red (see ).
*Expected behaviour. Be treated like a normal message that has content by
default and hasn't been customized by the wiki. For example, like
(although that might not be best example, as there's talk of killing that
message). Additionally, links to the message should be blue, since it "exists"
(sort of anyhow). Exists and is empty, should be treated like exists and has
content, not as if there was no such message.
