If you construct your final results that way. I always filter out the empties in various ways on top, so I never noticed it was doing that. My backfill logic is already done by the time the resolver completes, so "mail" always has "the right answer" regardless of where it happened to come from. In my case, I have to do that with employee ID, which is null for guests and such, and I have to backfill.

Having said that, it does what it does, and behavior like that is locked in once it's been shipped, so it's mostly academic at this point, with an enhancement now to actually work around the behavior optionally.
