Thanks for the name suggestions - unfortunately I just pushed to the 
repo as emptyText, which remains my preference.

I can't see the use case for ListView - surely this is something that is 
better served as an implementation detail inside an application, rather 
than something baked into the control. Is there a use case I'm not seeing?
