[antlr-interest] Does ANTLR *need* ASTNull?

I have run into an issue with ASTNULL and hetero-ASTs using Java as
the target language (IIRC C# doesn't have ASTNULL and it isn't an
issue with C++).
Specifically, there are a few situations where ASTNULL is assigned as
the value of a vriable then, an attempt is made to cast that variable
whose value is ASTNULL to an hetero-AST class ==> classCastException!
Why does ANTLR-Java need ASTNULL?.
Why isn't just "null" simply used as in ANTLR-C#?
