In our experience writing large apps, the distinction is useful. Undefined means I forgot to do something (e.g. set a property or pass an argument); null means I tried to get something but it didn't exist.

null is intentional, its presence is explicit -- doesn't this imply that something _does_ exist? (...and its value is null)



Right, I wasn't exactly clear—I meant more the case of e.g. "nothing exists in the database, so I gave you back a null" or even "there wasn't any error, so I called you back with a null as the first param."
