Coming from a C++ background, I would say that the whole point of references (as opposed to pointers) is that a reference can never be null; nullable references are a fundamental violation of the programming model.

If you want pointers, why not use C++?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
