>>> I could have retained lines 711-719 because we had hasStoretypeOption and hasSrcStoretypeOption flags indicating whether they are provided by the user or set on those lines, but leaving them to be null as long as possible helps exposing any unintended usages. Now they are only used in pkcs11 and MSCAPI type checks which are null safe, and hasStoretypeOption and hasSrcStoretypeOption are now useless and removed.
