In my oppinion a bug.

Instead of returning null while deserializing which is obviously not an object, it will now return Null.Instance, which is the singleton of the Null type.
Imho a better design, since an event should have a Data object even if it represents null. Using an event to serialize uses also Null, so why not while deserializing...

Change the return of the NullConverter

Thus the converters deserialization is like the serialization and
uses the Null instance instead of just null.
